Separate Explosions Hit Army Base, Airforce Barrack And Public Bus In Kaduna

By SaharaReporters, New York

The city of Kaduna was hit by three major explosions today. Security sources told SaharaReporters that two of the attacks were apparent suicide bombs carried out by suspected Islamist militants of the Boko Haram sect.

A first bomb was detonated under a flyover in Kawo killing 3 people who were riding in a bus. A second and third a explosion went off at the 1st Mechanized Division of the Nigerian army and shortly afterwards a third explosion rocked the Nigerian Airforce base near.

The flyover connects both military bases. The Nigerian military has sealed off the scenes of the explosions making it difficult to verify the number of victim relating to the explosions.

Men of the National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) and the Road Safety Corps were prevented from going near the scene of the bomb explosions as soldiers cordoned off the scene chasing away journalists and civilians.

The Nigerian army has not issued a formal statement about the incident, a move interpreted by reporters on the ground as a clever attempt to control information emerging from the attack and possibly cover up the number of casualties.

Scores of people are dead and the best the army can do is shield information on the number of casualty. Are we helping ourselves?

Its sad to hear that the so

Its sad to hear that the so called military personnel that give's us stories of been ontop the issue of BH have become a prey... i wonder what next they would have to tell us in this case...

I think the only way through this, is sincerity of purpose with prayers.

Mr President Will Soon Set Up A Commitee.

Silly leadership, corruption has eating their brain they cannot think right.

MEND Should take some Lessons from BH

Yeye MEND, where una dey? Na how to run mouf and blow grammar on press releases upon releases un sabi. The love of MONEY derailed your mission. Bunch of theives and thugs fighting for their POCKETS. I heard most of MEND members have TURNED into ARM ROBBERS... maiming innocent people.

Those idiots in MEND had time in their hands to respond to JTF.

With all the money you cowards collected, no meaningful development in ND.

As much as I don't condone what BH does but I think those MEND members need Go and Learn 1 or 2 PRINCIPLES from BH.

1 Nigeria

Igbos should help Nigeria

Could the Igbos pls do the rest of Nigeria a favour by leaving the nook and crannies of the northern Nigeria and head back to their land? This is the only thing that still makes anybody think that one Nigeria is working. How many Yorubas or other tribes will remain anywhere if all Igbos mass-exit any part of Nigeria as foreigners? Pls Igbos, do well to help Nigeria re-organise for good.

TOO BAD ........

Yesterday as I left Airforce base passed through bypass what I saw pissed me off, those Airmen on their duty post collectin bribe from motorists with their dark shaded googles as if they know thier job. These terrorists must have bribed them or move unchecked to have hit kawo and 1 div. What mess and pity to the Nigerian security.

hmm

No!!! It has gotten out of hand... Jonah act now or never...

THE SAME STORY

Nigeria Is A Country Anything Goes And That Is Why The Elect SEAT DOWN THEY LOOK PRESIDENT And I Bet Nigerians That Very Soon You Will Hear The Sound Of Bomb In That Aso Rock Maybe That Time President Will Do Something.GEJ Is The Worst And Final President Of Nigeria.SNC Will Solve All These Problems As Mr President Don't Want To Divide This Country Called Nigeria,Just Wait,I Will Divide It By Myself

THE COMMENT BY THE LAST PERSON IS UNGODLY

WE SHOULD RATHER PRAY AND BE VIGILANT THAN BEING ARROGANT AND RUDE TO LEADERS. THE SINS OF PEOPLE LIKE THE LAST PERSON ABUSING THE PRESIDENT ARE BRINGING THE PUNISHING ACTIVITIES TO THE COUNTRY. GOD WILL SEE US THROUGH. THE CONDITION CALLS FOR REPENTANCE AS GOD WOULD COME NOW AND CONTROL HIS WORLD

ISLAM???

Until animals who are misreading what Islam is all about destroys this world finish before people open their eyes. These believers of Allah and prophet mohammed have been causing and wrecking havoc since like 4EVA. Seriously what are they fighting 4 or against?to the madman who said this is not religious but terrorist acts, at least 95% of terrorist are muslims and are fighting for some type of cause.When will Islam and its believers start preaching peace? when will the REAL Muslims come out and condemn these acts?why must we call Jonadan each time these evil amongst us unleash their weapons of destruction. Other muslims and northerners that speak these peoples languages, can you please quote passages in the Holy book to them that will make sense to them. Enough of believers of Islam killing all over the world. Afgan,Pakistan,Iraq,Iran,Cambodia,Sudan,syria,saudi,even Paris,Germany& UK na dem, now naija na dem.I could go on and on.. what God do they serve?

SNC is not an option

Many are busy calling for SNC whic the govt. may never accept, while the destruction of lives and properties continue.
I pity anybody that will accept to sit round any table for the so-called SNC because a bomb may explode and elimite the so called elders and deligates, God forbid.
How cld anybody not of Northern extraction still feel human to live and do business in such envt.?

GEJ AND BH

IF SSS CAN ARREST INDIME AND LEAVE SHARIF, MEANS GEJ AND SHERIF ARE THE REAL BH

Northern political leaders know exactly what's going on!!!!!...

Certain elements, that threatened to make the country ungovernable should be investigated...seems their threats are panning out...this is a clear case of the witch crying in the night and the baby dies by morning.....

Meci boko haram

Why shld we keep on killing innocent people? Salamualekum yan uwan mu hw ar we the masses going to keep on surfering from this horror.i believe u ar fighting the government if u guys ar doing it for the sake of ur people must they be killed for the sake of fighting 4 them? If there ar political influence in this case insha alau the almighty allah wil judge u.AMIN

to even believe that it is

to even believe that it is muslims destroying muslims communities you are mad.

BH Fire-On!

Should I be right to say that this could be the shortest and easiest way to seperate the nationalities of the so-called Nigeria to their regions as in the once-upon-a-time Yugoslovia? If so, then we dont need any SNC anymore but encouragement to BH to fire-on!
God help Nigeria.

if Jonathan knows what is

if Jonathan knows what is good for him he should call for the arrest of senator momodu sherif

I am not surprised

Nigerian security forces are just Jokers, I remember my visit to this same Airforce Base during the Christmas break along with my wife to pick up some cookies from an Airforce officers wife who makes cookies.

To my amazement and i recall asking my wife, is this how easy it should be to just drive in and out of a Military base in Nigeria without being checked or scanned?

Till we Nigerians treat protocol with professionalism these terrorist stand the chance of penetrating our security hubs to their satisfaction.

God be with us.

Kaduna Bombing Latest

Forget about government empty threat of dealing with boko haram. Let us trust in God to Deliver us from both government haram and boko haram.

Boko Haram Again and Again!!!

This is getting out of hand......

Boko haram

D strong northan cities are almost broken,if bokoharam r northanerns,den dey r killing dere state n demoting the development,the poor pple r always at the recievin end always,no any top gov.official ever killed.is this u cal fyt for justice....its a shame

Oga jonathan

Ogo till we die finish b4 u do smthing? Ur family are fucking safe under heavy security, while ordinary Nigerian is dieing innocently. God punish una jor.

Oga do something o, people dey die u dey eat n sleep. Abeg do something

God c us thru

We ought to pray for ds nonsense to come to a halt..

May God almighty expose does

May God almighty expose does behind this sinful act, and the military should wake up and protect this country since the civilians have failed us with corruption.

a govt. of committees for the cabal run by the cabal through dum

I bet Jonathan will be weeing in his pants now. If the army base isn't secured, is Aso Rock secure ?
MEND in the South, Boko Haram in the North and our man is busy smiling when there is nothing to smile about. Au must be thanking their starts they refused to be led by a moron !

I bet by tomorrow morning, he would raise another committee to look into that explosion. It's a govt. of committees for the cabal run by the cabal through the dumbo.

Jonathan had better sit up

If this president lacks ideas as to how to run this country, he shld do d honorable thing, resign and hand over the mantle to pple that can listen to the populace and a final solution to stall this wanton recklessness. Its obvious this is no religious sect thing as we r made to believe. This is terrorism. Nobody shld allow him/herself to be hoodwinked that anyth BH exists. Probably when the blast gets to abuja and their kith and kin aree shredded that's when their eyes will clear.

its time for action

Once upon a time it was thought that the Nigerian Civil war was fought ‘to keep Nigeria one.’ But statements and sentiments such as these are showing that the war was fought for the control of oil resources. Nigeria’s federation has become an indefinite oil and gas land dispute. May God save Nigeria!”

unstoppable

Are these people truly invisible? what a porous nigeria that we live in. that means no body is safe becos its seems we are all sitting on a keg of gun powder, oh God pls intervene, these people are not unstoppable!
