From Edwin Olofu, Kano

Multiple explosions again rocked the city of Kano yesterday. A bomb exploded around the Bukavu army barracks, followed another explosion in Rijiyar Zaki area of the metropolis.
The Joint Military (JTF) spokesperson in Kano, Lieutenant Ikedichi Iweha, confirmed the blast but said the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded near the Dantata Shopping Complex Building in Kano and that there was no casualty.
“It was just a minor explosion near our barracks at the Dantata Shopping Complex, no one was hurt and we are on top of the situation as I speak with you.”
Iweha said the bomb was planted in a gutter near the mammy market of Bukavu Barracks.
Our correspondent gathered that there was another explosion in Rijiyar Zaki area of the Kano metropolis where some bomb making substances were abandoned earlier.
But Iweha denied knowledge of such blast, saying he was not aware and could only confirm the one near Bukavu Barracks.
It would be recalled that last weekend a soldier from Bukavu Barracks was trailed to Sharada and shot dead by unknown gunmen.
