Kano Police Bomb Squad Detonates Powerful Explosive Planted In Front Of A Bank

The Anti-Bomb Squad of the Nigerian police
By SaharaReporters, New York

The Anti-bomb unit of the Nigerian police today successfully detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) buried across from the GTB bank on Murtala Mohammed Way in Kano.

Police spokesperson in Kano, ASP Musa  Majia told SaharaReporters by phone that the bomb disposal unit of the Nigerian Police in the state were mobilized to the area  after the police was  alerted to a suspicious package around 1:30 PM Nigerian time.

The bomb disposal unit successfully removed the bomb and detonated it a few minutes later. He said the controlled explosion did no damage to anyone or property and that life has since returned to normal in the area.

SR MAY BE TECHNICALLY CORRECT BUT THE MEANING CAN BE MISREAD

It is obvious that SR meant to communicate that the IED was "disabled" by the Police.Of course this may be done through defusing ie eliminating the source of power or through a controlled explosion which also means the IED will be detonated in the process.
However the possibility of a reader misinterpreting it is quite possible because the element of "disabling" was missing in the caption.
So let's not loose focus of the message which is more important than the borrowed language,English is not our mother tongue.

There is what is called the golden rule in the rule of interpretation,just in case you are not learned and you argue blindly,it is obvious that the writer deviated from the literal rule of interpretation.please go and study more on the rules of interpretation.There absolutely nothing wrong with the use of the word detonate.

Morons Criticizing Sahara Reporters

det·o·na·tion - /ˌdetnˈāSHən/
Noun:
1. The action of causing a bomb or explosive
device to explode
2. A loud explosion

So SR is right on point. The bomb was exploded in a controlled environment where it could not harm anyone. You morons should go back to school.

The police spokeman said "the

The police spokeman said "the bomb was safely removed and detonated few minutes later.Who is fooling who?

The report is quite clear as regards the detonation. Please refer to the article again!

Stupid idiot

You stupid idiot. You are more interested in the grammer than in the message. That demonstrate how ignorant and detached from reality you are. You shoud go back to Kofa Wambe and bury your head in shame.

kano police bomb sqaud

We thank God for nipping the explosion in the bud. Only God knows how many heads would have rolled ; and how much damage in cash would have been lost. Daddy God, we thank You o o o

Yes I quite agree with u. I

Yes I quite agree with u. I was going to point that out.

STOP ATTACKING SR

Its funny how people seem to attack SR for grammatical errors.Ironically,they seem to care less about the content and context of the news in general.
First,
1. The phrasing of the article is correct.To 'detonate' a bomb could mean two things.'safely detonate'

2.The picture used in the article does not have to correspond with the particular event.'archive picture '
SO SH,KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.YOUR NEWS HAS ALWAYS BEEN TIMELY.
NICE ONE OTILE!

GRAMMATICAL JAGONS

I WISH FOR ONCE TO STATE MY DISPLEASURE AT THE GRAMMATICAL JARGON EVIDENT IN THE USE OF THE WORD DETONATE ON A MOST RESPECTED WEBSITE LIKE SAHARA REPORTERS.ONE WOULD HAVE SIMPLY THOUGHT IT WAS A MERE MISTAKE IN THE CAPTION BUT UPON CAREFUL EXAMINATION OF THE CONTENT OF THE MESSAGE,IT WAS OBVIOUS THE REPORTER HAS PROBLEM WITH THE MEANING OF THE WORD DETONATE.PLEASE LET US MAKE EFFORTS TO EDIT PROPERLY OUR MESSAGE BEFORE REPORTING TO THE GLOBAL AUDIENCE.
SUCH ERRORS ARE UNFORGIVABLE IN CERTAIN QUARTERS.
REGARDS

ATTENTION EVERY BODY... THEY ARE MUSLIMS! (Otile, Oleku, Apkos1)

Why do you guys cause trouble when i know that you are Hausa-Fulani Muslims? Allah will punish you more for hypocracy!

SR,THANKS FOR THE NEWS...JUST A LITTLE MORE EDITING WOULD HELP.

The caption sends a different message from the intended one.This is a mistake and I hope forum folk will understand and make sense out of it.
The BH is concentrating on Kano because the Emir gave them a red card.

Commentators check insolence.

Commentators check insolence. Don't kill the messenger. SR is bringing us accurate and timely news, but some devious individuals resort to attacking SR. Why not direct your attacks to the Islamists who are bringing us the mayhem, hari-kari, and atrocities?

KANO BOMB

I would like to suggest that the phrasing of the article is incorrect. to detonate a bomb means to activate it i.e. the bomb blows up. to deactivate a bomb means to stop it from blowing up. Please cross-check the grammar used in your articles before printing.

Regards

Wrong picture.

Its abuja command thats on that car not Kano. SR, be guided.
