The Kaduna State Government has confirmed that a device suspected to be an Improvised Explosive Device was detonated around Yazufa Junction, Hayin Danmani, Igabi LGA on Saturday.
Newsmen reported that residents of Hayin Danmani were thrown into confusion as an IED exploded near a Point of Sale operator’s shop in the area.
The explosion injured the PoS operator who was rushed to the hospital.
The state Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed the incident, said the explosion caused “serious injuries” that affected the PoS operator and other yet-to-be-identified persons.
The commissioner explained that the PoS operator, simply identified as Mohammed Hassan, at the close of shop had gone to pick up his motorcycle “where it was parked close to his shop, and upon starting the motorcycle, it exploded.”
Aruwan, however, said that the personnel of the anti-bomb squad of the state Police Command had visited the scene of the incident and evacuated the debris.
He also said operatives successfully disabled the second device planted in the area by some criminal elements.
