The Kano State Police Command has revealed the cause of explosion that rocked Aba by Court road in Sabon Gari, Fagge Local Government Area of Kano earlier today.

Four residents were said to have lost their lives while many others were trapped in the incident.

Amid the ensued chaos and tragedy, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) were seen packing what is suspected to blown out body parts of a victim of the explosion suspected to be bomb.

But offering explanation for the likely cause of the explosion, the Kano Commissioner of Police, Sama’ila Shu’aibu Dikko, attributed it to gas cylinder burst.

Dikko said four people have so far been discovered dead while security personnel are trying to find the remaining victims of the incident.

“It is not bomb explosion; it’s a gas cylinder. There’s a gas welder here and he was the first victim of the situation.”

“As at now, one female and three males have been killed. All the security agencies are here. The Civil Defence, Brigade commander, Air force, myself and the director, DSS, are all on ground.

“We will extend our investigation and at the end of the day we will come out with exactly what happened.”
