Panic in Kano
Kano was yesterday gripped by a bomb scare. A polythene bag containing packed waste was dumped by the side of the ever-busy Abubakar Rimi Market, Sabon Gari. It caused panic within the market.
Traders ran helter- skelter for their dear lives.
The bomb scare occurred around 9a.m. when traders resumed for the day’s business.
They called the police Anti-Bomb Squad, whose men scanned the polythene bag and discovered that it contained waste.
Despite an appeal by security operatives urging the traders not to close shops, many of them shut their business premises.
Also, a car parked on Warri Road/Ibo Road caused panic among residents who requested that the car contained explosives.
Kano police spokesman Magaji Musa Majiya confirmed the bomb scare, but urged residents to always be security conscious.
