Multiple explosions on Tuesday rocked Kaduna military formations.

Another bomb, said to have been thrown from a moving vehicle, exploded at the gate of the NAF base.

Almost at the same time, another bomb planted under the Kawo bridge exploded leaving screens of moving vehicles shattered with scores injured.
