Bomber Lynched After Mosque Blast, Another Arrested....

Muslim worshippers in northern Nigeria’s Kano city on Wednesday night
lynched a suspected bomber after an explosive detonated outside the
city’s main mosque, a military spokesman said.

The suspect was mobbed and drenched in petrol along with his
motorised tricycle before being set alight
, while a second suspect
was nabbed while trying to flee, Lieutenant Iweha Ikedichi said.

“There was an explosion around the central mosque this evening and people
in the area pursued the bombers who came on a tricycle and lynched
one of them by setting him and the tricycle on fire,” Ikedichi said.

"The other suspect was apprehended and is in our custody,” Ikedichi said, without giving details on the identity of the suspect.

There were no injuries from the explosion or damage to the mosque, which sits at the centre of the city near the palace of Emir of Kano Ado Bayero.

The emir is an influential traditional and spiritual leader who survived a gun attack on his convoy in January in which five people were killed.

It was not clear who was behind the explosion although Islamist extremist group Boko Haram has carried out repeated shootings and bombings in the city, northern Nigeria’s largest.

Earlier on Wednesday, Nigeria took a further step towards granting amnesty to Boko Haram members in an effort to stop the insurgency.

President Goodluck Jonathan announced a panel to study how the offer should be made. A member of the panel, Shehu Sani has rejected his membership of the 25-man panel.

The Boko Haram conflict is estimated to have left more than 3,000 people dead since 2009, including killings by the security services.

Former Military President Gen. Ibrahim Babangida a fortnight ago, suggested the engagement of ordinary citizens in fighting the activities of Boko Haram insurgents.
Babangida advised Nigerians to adopt the ``Azare style'', referring to the method adopted by residents of Azare in Bauchi State, to deal with suspected terrorists.
 
Azare residents last year, over-powered some gunmen who invaded the town and have been enjoying relative peace since then.
