Tension rose to another high as a bomb blast went off in the Kidandan community of Giwa Local government in Kaduna, with one killed and ten injured have been reported following the bomb explosion.

In the mid-afternoon of Saturday, 20th January 2024, a loud bang exploded in the Kidandan community of Giwa LGA of Kaduna State; with one fatality recorded, 10 were injured in the cross explosion.

Shortly after the blast, the Kaduna State government confirmed that one person was killed and others caught in the blast radius, leaving ten injured in an explosion.

The Overseeing Commissioner of the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs for Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan, released a statement via his official handle on X, depicting Uba Sani, the State governor, commiseration with the people of Kaduna on the blast occurrence.

Aruwan said, “Preliminary reports from the traditional institution and security agencies, one of the pupils learning under a local cleric picked up an object from the bush, which later exploded amidst his fellow pupils.”

Furthermore, he stated, “As of the time of this update, one pupil, Zaidu Usman, has been confirmed dead, while about ten injured victims are receiving medical attention at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Shika.”

The governor, Uba Sani, however, expressed shock and sadness at the moment of notice but also appealed to parents and community leaders to increase their vigilance on the activities of their children and wards, given their susceptibility to various dangers.

Meanwhile, the governor directed the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs to liaise with security agencies for an urgent investigation into the cause of the explosion to ensure the safety of residents, mobilize emergency support and ensure prompt medical attention to victims.

This is the second report of a bomb blast in 2024, following the blast of January 16th in the area of Bodija, Ibadan Oyo State, Nigeria.
