Explosion at Local Government office in Zaria

No fewer than 20 persons have been killed as a result of an explosion that rocked the local government office in Zaria, Kaduna State of Nigeria. This explosion occurred while primary school teachers and other public workers were going through an identity check.

The blast occurred at about 9am on Tuesday July 7 2015, a day after a young girl estimated to be no more than 13 years of age blew up near a mosque in the city of Kano. The death toll from the latest attack is likely to increase from the 20 fatalities currently report.

According to reports, the workers had gone to under a check aimed at eliminating ghost workers from the government’s payroll. The workers were said to be going in in batches. A worker who was among those waiting said the first batch of about 100 had gone into the hall to meet with the screening committee when they suddenly heard an explosion inside the hall and saw smoke billowing from inside.

The area has since been cordoned off by security officials but given the number of people inside the hall, the eye witnesses outside think the casualities will be very high. We shall bring more report as we get them.
