The Nigeria Police say a second explosion has rocked the ancient city of Kano.
The police announced the fresh explosion via its twitter handle.
The explosion came less than five hours after a blast tore through the Hotoro area of the city, killing no fewer than five persons.
The police say the second explosion was also detonated by a suicide bomber just like the first.
The number of casualty as well as other details are unavailable at this time.
There is panic across the city and sorrow is etched on the faces of residents.
Today, 28-07-14 at about 10:00am, another suicide bomb went off at Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC Mega Filling Station at Hotoro Quarter along Maiduguri Road, Kano.
A suicide bomber suspected to be a female had slipped into the crowd of citizens buying kerosene at the Station before detonating the explosives. The suicide bomber and three others have been confirmed dead, eight persons are injured and rushed to the Hospital.
It is instructive to note that the Mega Station did not go ablaze due to the security barricade put in place by the Policemen on duty at the station. Such a situation would have clearly complicated the Emergency response.
Security Forces have cordoned off the scene, and Police Bomb Disposal Experts are "sweeping" the area. Citizens are advised to stay off the scene, be vigilant and report any suspicious person(s)...
