KANO – Multiple explosions Wednesday night, hit two primary schools in Jayin and Hotoro Arewa in Kumbotso and Nasarawa local government areas respectively in Kano municipal.

An eyewitness told Vanguard that the attackers of Hotoro Arewa primary school came on a motorbike and hauled explosives into a new story building due for commissioning soon which immediately blew off the roof of the house.

The source further explained that the attack triggered pandemonium and forced night life to a halt as residents scampered to safety.

However, at Jayin primary school located at the heart of Industrial estate phase 2, few vehicles parked within the premises of the school were badly damaged but no damage was done to the building.

The midweek attack on the two pro-western educational institutions is the first of such attacks in the city since Kano came under attack on January 20, 2012.

Meanwhile, no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks but authorities said; “investigations have commenced to unravel the perpetrators”.

Confirming the incident in a telephone conversation with Vanguard, JTF spokesman in Kano Lt Iweha Ikediche explained that “some IED’s went off within the premises of two primary schools last night”

Iweha disclosed that “counter terrorism personnels were deployed to the scene for necessary actions.” He however, refused to divulge further details regarding the extent of damages.

Also confirming the incident, the outgoing spokesman of the Kano State police command, ASP Magaji Musa Majia revealed that “few cars parked within the premises of Jayin primary school lost their windscreens.”

He however, assured that the Command will in due course issue a comprehensive details about the incident.
