A suicide bomber on Saturday morning drove a car into the offices of Airtel in Mallam Kato Square in Kano and exploded the bomb-rigged vehicle. Olufamous.com gathered from sources on ground in Kano that the multi-million naira edifice is still in flames as at the time of reporting.
It remains a surprise to many how the suicide bomber was able to gain access into the premises, which is heavily guarded by combat-ready security men.
Casualty figure remains sketchy but a source told Olufamous.com that the area is in commotion. He added that he has seen injured persons but could not go close enough due to the presence of heavily armed security personnel.
Recall that the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram had promised deadlier attacks during the festive period.
