Militants driving a smashed SUV and motorbikes threw an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) at the convoy of the The Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, and then shot at his official vehicle, killing his driver and three of his guards, according to a military source.

The attack took place near the Hockey Field on Zoo Road by Total Gasoline station while the Emir was returning from the launching of an Islamic school at Mussalaci Murtala.

The Emir was unhurt in the attack and has since been moved to an undisclosed location.

Some residents in the area said Nigerian troops of the Joint Task Force later took over the scene of the attack while firing shots.

JTF spokesperson in Kano, Captain Ikedichi Iweha said he was still trying to get the full details of the attack, asking to speak with Saharareporters as soon as official incident report becomes available.

Long live the federal republic of Nigeria where peace and unity shall be.

Thanx for advising him right,

Thanx for advising him right, his words are nt of the wise

This time when the North is

This time when the North is totally engulfed in crises Arne Jack Gowon will flee to Papua New Guinea, that way the Tauregs cannot cross the Pacific Ocean to capture him alive.

May you have wisdom to reason

You are one of those little fools who thought Muslims are part of their predicaments and therefor have total hatred for Muslims and Islam. May God give you wisdom to reason. Amen.

For the attention of ethnic bigots - Akpos 1 & Otile

No fewer than 15 unidentified and bloated corpses have been discovered floating on Ezu River in Amansea community, near Awka; a boundary area between Enugu and Anambra states, both in eastern Nigeria.

The Amansea River is a tributary of River Niger and derives its source from Agbuogugu community in Enugu and flows through Orji to Amansea.

The river is also a source of drinking water to the people of Amansea and neighbouring communities.

According to NAN, the corpses were found at about 8 a.m. on Saturday, when villagers went to the river to fetch water for their domestic chores.

What goes around comes around

God don catch Northerners. When they were raising bh to murder Christians they didnt know they where digging their own graves, now bh is turning around to hunt them... Good one there bh. Christ has said vengance is mine, this is only the begining guys. The blood of the innocent christians will get them all.

Re: Northern Elite ............

I wish to sincerely show my dismay over the manner in which you write your piece. It is clear you are an emisery of unrest since you don't appreciate what Islam teaches and also the role leaders play in peace and conflict resolution. Pls take time and study events certainly you will come to realise what you said is probacative and unhealthy. It time for reconcilation and not agitation. Please watch your words they are not of the wise one.

Igbos

Igbos, Igbos, Igbos! Why, why, why?

Dont need them in Democracy

In a country of democracy, we don't need these ancient corrupt unelected zealots. Get rid of them lots.
By all means necessary

A dog rearer stands a good

A dog rearer stands a good chance of one of his children being bitten by a mad dog, the saying goes. All of us hypocrits have forgotten Gideon Akaluka? Each time two muslims quarrelled, even in far away Afghanistan, muslims in northern Nigeria will decend on Ibos in their midst, killed and destroyed their means of livelihood. The northern leaders, including this emir would look the other way. Now that most of the Ibos have left the core north, the blood-thirsty murderers would look for the nearest unfortunate victim to devour. To address this, we must tell ourselves the truth and return to the round table. 2014 is just by the corner and is the most appropriate time to conclude the SNC.

@ akpos1 & Otile

Akpos1 im not suprized when you said 'he urinates squating'. You know why? COZ YOU ARE A DOG!!! Even the bitch squates when she pees! U smelly k9 infected and infested with rabies and thick. As for you otile, you are son of a demonised pig! Dujjal is what you are, rotten dead bodies is what you eat.

OMOAHOLO IMOGIRIE

How come it is christains that bombed some 1st Octobers ago? How come? How come? & oh are chritains not involved in MEND? & a muslim president dished out monies for 'amnesty' & even created a ministry of niger delter? Which unfortunately christaing president and kingsmen are using as avenue to steal? Pleeeeas! Dont be a pig brain bithcy prostitute & think like a man... i.e if you are atall!

Northern Elites & Emirs, You All Have Fallen Into Your Traps!

The Northern Elites & Emirs have fallen into their traps meant for innocent people. There are no needs for shouting. When innocent people & Christians were killed, what do you guys do? Nodding of your rag heads in appreciation of jobs well done by your muslims Boko Haram brethren. Your woes has just started. You guys have seen nothing yet. The blood of those Christians you murdered are crying out of their graves for pay backs. You greedy bastards think you are doing harm to innocent people not knowing that the evils you Muslims did will come and hunt you guys. We are waiting for the gap tooth(IBB) devil to meet his end. IBB is the first Boko Haram in Nigeria. The blood of Dele Giwa & others are crying out of their grave for vengeance from God. IBB, you're next.

Emir is a man of peace

Boko Haram. Haba! Even Baba Ado Bayero not spared? Perhaps you thought He is too peaceful and you want to eliminate him and instal a blood thirty one. May Almighty Allah Grant the Emir stability and further longevity. Boko Haram. What do you want?

Jesus is the answer

Let's not waste our energy...!!! Jesus is the answer to these insurgence. Until BH turn to Christ, peace shall be far away from them.

Attack on the emir's convoy

Did somebody just posted a comment with 'revolution' mentioned? This is one analysis we may start considering as noone other than Ado Bayero would have been more vindicated and revered after the Sultan of Sokoto as leaders of Islam. We have been looking at current politics and religion of which any form revolution will not be a bed-mate. So that leaves us with a hint of gradual emancipation and patritic awareness; in short, a national revolution emerging from the north - which still makes the north the usual bold/brave geo-demographic part of Nigeria. They led in the civil war however, unpleasant the memory is, and a claim to being the lead geodemographic structure can not be denied in this instance. The only flaw is that their activities are not well coordinated and in isolation from the rest of the nation.

@ HJC, if you think the

@ HJC, if you think the northerners are idle, who planted the groundnut that was used in building groundnut pyramid in Kano? Who cultivate the cotton that was used as the main raw material in the BRITISH COTTON GIN(BCG)? Who rear the animals taken to the so called educated and even the illiterates in the south? Who plant the onion, tomato and other vegetables taken to the south? Please is it the idle northerners or you and the educated elites down? .

Re:ma condolence

@hjc:wat does sharia gt 2 do wit dis?ur completly out of point,ur jst an ethnic nd religious bigot tryin 2 potray northern muslims as miscreants.ur analysis is full of bias nd propaganda,ist nt da southerners dat start terorist activities in nig?go 2 da archives nd chek da pple dat started detonatin bombs,armed robbery nd kidnappin.ol dis r da occupation of southerners.go nd get ur facts right empty head

Emir should have been dead instead!!!

It would have been better for the bomb to hit the emir instead of the innocent driver and the guards. The emir is part of the problems we are having today. Useless idiots!!!!!

Northern Leaders Negligence

My condolence to the Families of all the victims.If not because my religion teaching forbade rejoicing while someone is in distress,with the Emir's attack i could have just say thank you Boko Haram.Because the menace of Boko Haram today in Nigeria emanated from Northern Leader's NEGLIGENCE.

may Allah (swa) keep you in

may Allah (swa) keep you in his protection and the rest of muslim( Allah ya taimaki sarki ya kara masa lafiya amin)
