Initial visuals from the explosion site showed several schoolchildren being moved away from the scene. One of them was injured. This led to speculation that the explosion occurred in a school.

But the Government has said that was not the case.

The Commissioner for Information in the state, Muhammad Garba, said in a statement the blast happened at an animal feed store opposite the school.

An investigation has commenced to determine the cause, impact, and measures to be taken, according to Garba.

Meanwhile, NGNEWS247 reports that details of the Kano bomb explosion and its cause are still sketchy as of the time of filing this report.
