Police Detonate Explosives At BUK  print

It would have been yet another tragedy in the old site of Bayero University Kano, BUK, northwest Nigeria today, but for the intervention of the anti-bomb squad from Kano state Police Command which detonated four explosives planted in lecture halls.

This followed the discovery of two other explosives planted within the university two days ago at the institution’s Department of Sociology.

These incidents have heightened fear and apprehension not only within the university community but across the city.

P.M.NEWS reports that security agencies in Kano are showing serious concern over the bomb incidents in BUK and they have resolved to tighten security within the university community.

“We have appealed to the university authorities for a huge security presence in the area so as to forestall this ugly trend but they continue to complain that such move is capable of disrupting academic activities. I think we may not have any other choice than to take serious security measures to curtail this ugly trend,” said a security source.

According to the source, no casualty was recorded in Tuesday’s incident at BUK.

“One of the bombs exploded while the anti-bomb squad was trying to detonate it but nobody was wounded,” a source said.

On Sunday last week, assailants suspected to be members of Boko Haram struck at the same campus of the university, killing about 20 people, including two professors at Christian places of worship.
