Reports from Kano say an explosion has occurred around Unguwa Uku along the Zaria Road highway. A resident of the area said the Joint Task Force, JTF, has already arrived the area and cordoned off the explosion site thereby blocking the ever busy highway.
He also said casualty figures, if any, cannot be ascertained now because of the restriction of access to the area.
Another explosion is also reported around the restive Eastern Bye pass area.
Efforts to reach the spokesperson of the JTF, Lazarus Eli, were unsuccessful as his lines were continuously busy.
You will recall that JTF in Kano arrested some suspects a few days ago with a car laden with bombs and other ammunition which they planned to use HERE
