TERRORISTS suspected to be members of dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, bombed the headquarters of Nigeria Police Force, Kano State, killing scores, including Channels Television correspondent, Enenche Akogwu and injuring many others.
They also unleashed terror on the State Security Services and Immigration Headquarters in the city killing and injuring people.
Terrorists, who engaged the policemen there in a gun duel stormed the state police command headquarters in Bompai.
Security sources said the gunmen had earlier attacked the Immigrations office at Farm Centre.
The attack at the police headquarters, according to report, was carried out by a suicide bomber driving a Honda Civic car.
The bomber, according to the report, succeeded in breaking through the gates of the building and rammed the car into the wall of a vocational centre in which wives of police officer learn sewing.
The building, which was completely destroyed is adjacent to the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 1.
At least, 30 others suffering from varying degrees of injuries have been taken to different hospitals across the state.
A witness, Garba Danazumi Lere, said he saw the bodies of three police officers and a local journalist after blast at the police zonal headquarters.
A second blast went off at the SSS headquarters along Sardauna Crescent after a first blast caused the security agents to cordon off the immediate vicinity of their office.
There have also been reports of an explosion at a motor park along New Road in Sabon Gari area and another police station at Yarakwa along Zaria road.
These added to the number of explosions and gun attacks that rocked the city yesterday evening.
Casualty figures from these sites are not yet known.
At the SSS headquarters, it was said that one of the attackers was killed and a second arrested in an earlier attack.
According to an orange seller who was selling oranges close to the Immigration office when the attack on that office started, the attackers were two in number.
‘I was peeling my oranges when all of a sudden two men walked to the building and began shooting at the immigration personnel there. I saw at least three of them fall before I ran for cover,’ he narrated.
It was after the shooting that the explosions began, he said.
A resident in Tarauni described a very thick dark cloud of smoke in the sky visible from his location to our reporter, most likely coming from the explosion at Ungwar Uku.
Immigrations spokesman, Mohammed Kanoma, said at least three officials were killed, as well as an unknown number of civilians in the attack.
The fresh explosions are happening two days after the alleged mastermind of the Christmas Day bombing of St. Theresa’s Church in Madalla, in Suleja escaped from police custody.
The BBC Hausa-language service claimed that a spokesman for the Boko Haram sect claimed the Friday's attacks across Kano, where at least four bombs exploded.

Can someone tell me why the bombing will stop.Why would it stop and how it stop when the so called boko haram members will be arrested today and Tomorrow the Malam police will release them to go and they will come to news and tell us that the suspect escaped.

The other day 6 boko haram member was granted on bail buy one malam Jugde,so my brothers tell me what the bombing will not continue,when those arrested already arrested was set free,grant on bail and so on,so why won't they continue bombing,after nothing dey happen.

So i do not see this bombing of thing stopping because the members of this group that was arrested nothing was done to them,no punishment was given to them ,no jail sentence,no firing squad,no hanging,no grinding not even 24 stroke of cain on their bum bum so how will they stop.

It is only in Nigeria that an arrested terrorist can escaped from Police custody,only in Nigeria that Terrorist are grant on bail from the law court.All these hausas people know what they are doing,and most annoying part of it that they still want one Nigeria,how can we be one living with fear everyday.

How can you grant a Terrorist on Bail? How you say that a Terrorist escape from prison?.

The Easterners and teh Southerners should know that the hausa police and so called Judges knows what they are doing.

Just that power left the North,these muslims has swear with their gave which they will enter soon that GEJ regime will be ungovernable.

How many of the Northern Governors,leaders,rulers,their sultan and etc has said something about these bombings? Nothing,they have nothing to say about.

I am beginning to enjoying the bombing self,if they like let me level the whole part of the North,that is their business,infact if they lack bomb,we will supply them more,they should continue bombing so long as it is in North no problem,they should kill all the living creatures there in the North,na for their pocket.

Make they no near east,south or west side of the country,when they finish deserting their home,i will now know where they live in.Time is coming when no hasusa man will be allowed to stay in the east or south,or west of that country.

They should go on Bombing,after all killing na their believe na so their koran teach them,they are fighting for their allah and doing the evil work of the allah and mohammad evil rapist Prophet.
