PHOTOS- Kano Motorpark Bomb Blast Scenes

Monday, as no fewer than 20 passengers were feared when suspected suicide bombers bombed five luxury buses.

More than 50 other persons, including mostly itinerant petty traders selling sachet water, suffered varying degrees of injuries.  

at least 10 other vehicles and about 20 shops containing goods estimated at several millions of naira were also burnt.

The tragedy reportedly occurred at about 5.20 p.m at the ever-busy motor park located on New Road, in Sabongari, in the ancient city.

It is the main park for prospective passengers to Lagos, Benin City, Port Harcourt, Enugu and other parts of the South-East.

The three-member suspected bombers were said to have arrived in a Volkswagen Golf car at the park, as the five buses belonging to three privately-owned mass transit firms were about taking off.


The car reportedly rammed into one of the fully loaded buses belonging to a privately owned mass transit company, Godson, resulting in a deafening explosion that was accompanied by an inferno.

While two buses belonging to the company were affected, another two owned by Chimenzie Motors and one bus belonging to Ezenwata Motors, all of which were said to fully loaded with intending passengers to the Eastern part of the country, were completely razed.

A witness said that a rescue team that comprised mostly of security operatives and men of the fire service managed to retrieve about 20 charred bodies when the fire was partially brought under control.
