Fresh bombs defused in Kano

23 January 2012

•Arrests have been made - Jonathan
•FG places security agencies on red alert
•UN, Britain condemn Friday’s attack
AS the city of Kano seemed to be recovering from the devastating effect of the multiple bomb blasts that claimed no fewer than 200 lives, on Friday, bombs planted in two cars were defused on Sunday in the city.

This is just as President Goodluck Jonathan, on Sunday, said arrests had been made over attacks in the city of Kano and that the backers of the sect were being pursued.

One of the bomb-rigged cars, a Kia brand, was parked very close to Chula Oil at Eastern bye-pass, while the second car, a Honda Civic, was parked at the NNPC mega petrol station in Hotoro area of the city.

It was discovered that the two cars were parked to give the impression that the owners wanted to purchase fuel at the petrol stations.

However, two days after all the other cars had been removed from the petrol stations, the people of the area became suspicious and went to the authorities.

The people had noticed that the window of the cars were open but when it was night, a person would come and wind up the glass of the cars .

Following this, the security operatives combed the vehicles and discovered the bombs which they later defused.
