The Kano State Commissioner of Police, Sama’ila Dikko, has attributed the incident which occurred at Aba by Court road in Sabon Gari of Kano to a gas explosion.
Dikko made the clarification during his visitation to the scene of the incident.
Newsbreak.ng earlier reported that a bomb explosion in Kano had left many killed.
Dikko, who spoke in Hausa, also confirmed that four persons have so far been discovered dead while security personnel are trying to find the remaining victims of the incident.
“It is not a 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.”
