Police intercept bomb-laden car in Kano

Culled from Punch
The police in Kano averted a planned bomb attack as the command intercepted a bomb-laden Golf car and other dangerous weapons.
Other items recovered from the car include an AK 47 Rifle, Assault Rifle, 238 live ammunition of different caliber, Rocket Launcher, AK 47 Magazines, seven Turkey oil—stuffed with remote-control bombs, two cylinder remote-control devices, 14 hand grenades, four rolls of wire connector and 12 power source.
Commissioner of Police, Musa Daura, told reporters on Wednesday that the command, acting on intelligence, engaged a group of terrorists in a gun battle on the outskirts of the city, injuring some of them and recovering abomb-laden Golf 3 vehicle, as well as arms and ammunition.

Daura said the occupants of the vehicle instantly opened fire upon sighting a police patrol van and a gun battle ensued,with the militants retreating after receiving bullet wounds.

The CP claimed that no policeman was hurt during the attack.

He said, “On Tuesday, on about 2130 hours, based on a tip-off, our men intercepted a Golf 3 Motor Vehicle with Reg. No. AG 701 KTN at an outskirt village here in Kano.

“The occupants of the vehicle on sighting the Patrol Vehicle opened fire and immediately, our men responded with superior power, which made the occupants to abandon their vehicle and escaped with bullet wounds.

“The intention of these hoodlums was to cause havoc and destabilize peace which will subsequently lead to economic and social sabotage in Kano state.
“However, my men sealed up the whole area with a view to identify and arrest the fleeing suspects.”

Ahn ahn, see how razz the bombs look esp the ones inside vegetable oil containers. Na wa oh for all the join-join they did just to make bombs yet one would have thought the culprits were stack illiterates since they are against western education. May God punish all of them.

well done to the police guys... may God protect and keep you all even as you endanger your lives to catch these ruthless killers.

This is just too much! How can they think of all these wicked things in a country that is under developed?? What would be left of Nigeria after all these bombings?? Illiteracy is a very big disease!

Hello Linda,i dont know if you truely understand this story b4 reporting it.Its just that,it ddnt make any sense quoting by what the Cp wants us to believe.How many people can be inside Vw Golf.None was arrested to show proof of their bravity.Numerously had the national dailies shown victims of attacks in the Northern states bt all police claims of arrests cum killings had no pictures to present/show for it...Telling a tale.THINK/umanna

1) this is just a stupid propaganda by the police in kano to make us believe they are actually doing their jobs... Whereas their real job is aiding and abetting (a) terrorist unit(s) to cause unprintable mayhem in that Godforsaken city

2) They are now calling terrorists, militant.. This is in order for them to create a basis upon which amnesty issues would eventually be discussed in future

3) note - that people who heartlessly kill innocent people without cause are bloody hell terrorists and should be wiped out without further delay by this useless leaders

Everything is just wrong with this nation, and i am never coming back to Nigeria

Hope this was a whistle blow as the police is claiming, not that the police dept set this up to show how hardworking they are. Sorry, am just out of trust for Nigerians as a whole. If is real, well done Nigeria police.

The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) needs more enforcement in fighting this hoodlum, because this guys are more brained and systemic in making bomb to cause destruction. imagine oil can.

Thank God, whether eye service or actual police work, this could have caused untold damage. @11.55pm what do you mean by razz, terrorist groups usually improvise home made materials to make bombs that are deadly. What do you think Al-qaeda and other terrorist groups use?

Please be real, you woke up 7:40am to drop a comment, do you think others won't sleep or do other normal things?...next time make a contructive comment and chill out...its Good friday, lots of activities for people so calm the hell down...ok?...thanks...Busslady

At times like this I wonder why God is not acting the way He used to act in the old testament days...we wouldn't need police or JTF cos just a strike of lightening from God would have cured this boko haram craze.

These people meant to take SEVERAL LIVES with these weapons. Why are muslims so wicked in the heart?

italktoomuch said...

This really shatters my heart. What has the North become. I have close friends that went to high school and even college in Kano and it used to be so much fun when they would come home on vacation and be spitting in Hausa and telling stories of how wonderful the North is. Now this is fast becoming a thing of the past. Non Hausas can no longer dream of living in the NORTH. These animals are making it so unbearable and the reason behind it all still makes absolutely no sense to me. Dear Father in Heaven please intervene

Why do I ve a strong feeling that this story is fake. Police or una Wan act like say una dey work. The car did nt explode in the gun battle- am just thinking,some things dnt add up. Or maybe I just too much of crime n investigation?
