In a sad development, details has emerged on the bomb blast that killed 25 in Sabon-Gari Local Government Area, Secretariat, Kaduna State. We earlier reported the story here.
The State Governor, His excellency Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai while speaking with correspondents from Channels Television, confirmed that they had earlier gotten a security warning of the likelihood of the attack. Sadly, the details were too sketchy for adequate proactive measures to be taken.
Eye witness reports revealed that a woman who sneaked into the Sabon-Gari Local Government Area, Secretariat, dressed in a hijab, was the suicide bomber.
The casualties were mostly civil servants that came for the ongoing screening exercise in the State.
Meanwhile the State Governor had gone to see the wounded currently recieving treatment at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Shika Zaria, Kaduna.
