One of the survivors of the multiple explosions that hit the Kano
Central Mosque in Kano, 75 year old Alhaji Mohammed Isa Tiga, is full
of thanks to Allah for sparing his life.
The old man who is currently recuperating at the Accident and
Emergency Unit of the Abdullahi Wase Specialist (Nassarawa) Hospital,
told Sun newspaper that those responsible for the blasts came in a Sienna
space wagon just as the Jumat prayers were about to start.
According to him, the three suicide bombers who pretended to be worshippers too. drove in with the bomb laden vehicle.
Hear him: “As soon as they arrived, they stepped out of the normal
worshippers and looked every bit like worshippers until they began to
operate. I was close by. I saw the three of them alight from the car. A
few minutes after they walked away from the vehicle, the bombs
exploded. As people tried to run away, the young men pulled out their
guns and were shooting at those struggling to escape from the blast. I
suffered injuries in the confusion….my survival is a miracle I really
don’t know what happened to the three men…” he told Sun.
