Boko Haram kills 25, injures 32 in Sabon Gari bomb attack


About 25 innocent people have been confirmed dead and another 32 critically injured in an attack at the Government Lodge in Sabon Gari area of Zaria, on Tuesday, reports ITRealms.

ITRealms also gathered that the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has expressed shock at the mindless attack by Boko Haram terrorists and sympathized with victims of the blast.

“I am sad that a terrorist bomb attack just killed 20 people in Sabon Gari Zaria,” according to Governor’s Twitter account.

“We call on our citizens to be vigilant and avoid crowded places like markets, mosques, churches and motor parks in the next few weeks,” he said.

The Governor had earlier put the number of the dead at 20 but the casualty figure has risen.

According to Channels TV, report monitored by ITRealms, the Red Cross officials and security agencies have evacuated the dead bodies while the 32 injured persons were taking to the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria and other hospitals within the city.

While the Sabon Gari blast was in the news, ITRealms learnt, a female suicide bomber reportedly blew herself up in a Mosque in Kano, even though no casualty was recorded according to information.
