Bomb blast rocks Kaduna state

A bomb blast occurred today at about 12 noon around Alkali Road which leads to the popular Murtala Square in Central Kaduna.

The Kaduna State Police Commissioner, Alhaji Umar Shehu, has confirmed that 25 people died following the bomb explosion. But sources around the area said that about 35 people lost their lives in the bomb attack.

However, the Alkali road incident is near Murtala Square, where muslim faithful had gathered to round up the Ramadan Tafsir led by a prominent Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi.

Sources said the attack must have been targeted at the Islamic scholar.

The bomb exploded few minutes after the programme which ended at about 1:00pm, killing people who were just leaving  the venue of the event through Alkali road.
