Suicide Bombers Attack Kano’s Emir Sanusi’s Palace Mosque, 92 Killed, 126 Injured As Gunmen Open Fire

At least 92 people have been confirmed dead at one hospital morgue following three explosions in Kano.

Earlier, 64 people were confirmed dead and 126 injured on Friday when two suicide bombers blew themselves up and gunmen opened fire during weekly prayers at a mosque of one of Nigeria’s top Islamic leaders.

The attack at the Grand Mosque in Kano, the biggest city in the mainly Muslim north of the country, came just as Friday prayers had got under way.

The mosque is attached to the palace of the Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II, Nigeria’s second most senior Muslim cleric, who just last week urged civilians to take up arms against Boko Haram.

The blasts came after a bomb attack was foiled against a mosque in the northeastern city of Maiduguri earlier on Friday, five days after two female suicide bombers killed over 45 people in the city.

National police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu told AFP that the bombers blew themselves up in quick succession then “gunmen opened fire on those who were trying to escape”.

Ojukwu said he did not know whether the suicide bombers were male or female, after a spate of attacks by women in recent months, and did not give an exact figure on the number of gunmen.

But he said an angry mob killed four of the shooters in the chaotic aftermath.

The Emir is current in Paris, France.

    This is a sad story, it is like we don’t have govt in Nigeria. Boko haram have been given the power to kill and to destroy by the gvt and there is naught anybody can do about it. The can deprive us anything they want but cannot deprive us praying to our God in heaven.

    Under this current hellish problem, Nigerians must not play ethnic game; it is simply idiotic of “this” Nkechi to wish her brothers and sisters evil. Whatever happens to Yorubas affects all. Internationally, people know you as a Nigeran; not Ibos or Yoruba. It disgusts me to read some opinions from irritants who are intimately disposed to hatred of the Yorubas. We must all unite and shame the enemies of this greatly disturbed nation.

    @Nkechi, are you for real? Or you are just a mediocre? Hence your statement and tribalistic tendencies has the potentials of fuelling a civil-ethnic clash and unrest. You should henceforth refrain from such myopic, uneducated & loose careless statement.
    I know you wish for bloodshed amongst certain part of people in Nigerian, but don’t use this forum to spread such violence…& I’m sure God will not answer your prayers.
    Lastly I’m willing to pay for your school fees to educate yourself further-perhaps with more education – you won’t be making these types of unguarded statements.
