Explosion Rocks Kaduna Community, 10 Children critically injured



No fewer than nine children have reportedly been injured in an explosion in Kidandan, Giwa Council Area of Kaduna State, North-West Nigeria..

The incident which occurred on Saturday afternoon is coming barely four days after an explosion rocked Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, that left five dead and over 70 others seriously injured.

The Kaduna State Police Command has confirmed the latest incident, noting that all the injured children had been taken to hospital for medical treatment.
The command’s spokesperson, Mansir Hassan, who confirmed the incident to TheCable, described the incident as unfortunate.

Hassan said, “We received the information through the DPO (divisional police officer). You know that area is the operational area where the security agencies are conducting a lot of operations in the bush.”

He regretted that those children picked an object and took it to their school and in the process of dismantling, it exploded.
“So, the young boys went to the bush and they saw an object and took it to the school.

“When they got to the school since they didn’t know what the object was, they decided to open it to see. So, in the process, it exploded and left about nine of them injured.”

The affected children are currently receiving treatment at a medical facility, the PPRO said.

He said the command’s EOD has visited the scene to “ascertain the situation and find out whether it was a bomb or what exploded.”
