Police operatives in Kano have arrested the principal suspect behind the early morning mosque explosion in Gadan village in Gezawa local government area of the state.
An unspecified number of people were injured when gunmen attacked the mosque in the early morning of Wednesday.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Usaini Gumel, in a chat with journalists on Wednesday identified the suspect as 38- 38-year-old Shafi’u Abubakar.
He said the suspect had confessed to attacking the mosque because of a long-standing family dispute over inheritance sharing.
The CP said: “On May 15, 2024, at about 5:20 a.m. the police received a report of an explosion at a mosque in Gadan Village during the dawn prayer, leaving several people injured.

“24 victims, including 20 males and four children, who sustained various degrees of injuries were rushed to Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital Kano for treatment.”
