A suspected bomber was yesterday apprehended and killed by angry mob near the entrance of the Emir of Kano’s palace known as “Kofar Kwaru”.
While the angry mob lynched one of the bombers, the other was apprehended and handed over to the police.
It was said that the incident happened after night prayer, about 8pm, when two people alighted from a tricycle. “The next thing we heard was a heavy explosion and the tricycle was immediately on fire. The people around the mosque and others coming out of the Emir’s palace shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’, meaning ‘God is great’, and at the same time chased the bomber, lynched him and pushed him into the tricycle that was already on fire.” an eyewitness said.
