A witness, who simply gave her name as Ayodele, said that when the blast occurred, she saw a flash of light that went to the sky and then disappeared.

“At first some people said that it was a tyre, then they said that it was gas and now we are hearing that it was a bomb. I don’t really know. But later as we were there, we saw small children on a bike as they were being rushed with blood to a private hospital”

Speaking on the spot of the incident, Kano State Commissioner of Police, Sumaila Shu’abu Dikko, confirmed that four persons were killed by the explosion while attributing the tragedy to a gas explosion.

Regardless, he stated that they have brought in a bulldozer to bring down the structure to enable them to establish the exact cause of the explosion.

He urged the residents of the Sabon Gari area, an area predominated by the visiting communities in the state, to remain calm and law-abiding as the investigation continues.

Meanwhile, a detachment of security personnel has been deployed to the affected area in a bid to avert any breakdown of law and order in the state.

Soldiers, alongside Anti- Bomb policemen and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps officers, were on the ground at the spot of the incident where patrol officers were going around the area.
