The police in Kano State has confirmed that an explosion that claimed over nine lives in the state was caused by a bomb. This comes after an investigation was carried out by the Explosive Ordnance Disposal-Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense, EOD-CBRN, and Operation Puff Adder of the Nigerian Police. The police had earlier claimed that the explosion that happened last week Tuesday was as a result of gas cylinder.
 
A statement signed by Police Public Relations Officer, PRO, Haruna Kiyawa, read in part; “a preliminary investigation revealed that among the nine victims of the explosion, one of them dealt in illicit storage of toxic chemicals and other hazardous materials.”
 
“He was later identified as Michael Adejo (now late). Items recovered at the scene include five bottles of different brands of Acidic Liquid, three bags of Potassium substance, one Jeri can of mixed chemicals, six and a half cartons of Snuff (Tobacco) and five drums of Polymer (Chemical).”
 
“Technical Investigation conducted by the command’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal – Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence, EOD-CBRN, revealed that the explosion is suspected to have occurred as a result of mixed Chemical / Gas reactions exposed to a source of heat, such as fire, spark or increase in pressure resulting in combustion/shock waves, creating an explosion which can have shattering effects.”

 
“Meanwhile arrests have been made linking one of the collapsed shops with dealings in sales of illicit, toxic chemical substances and combustible materials suspected to be used for making Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs,. Evidence of purchase was also recovered. An investigation is in progress.” the police stated.

And the stupid Kano state Police Public Relations officer mentioned the name of an igboman as the welder. Honestly , only God knows the most suitable punishment for these Northerners for their  hatred of Igbos . No doubt the attacker was a Northerner and his target undeniably were the igbos . Sabon Gari is more or less an Igbo enclave.
