Gov. Ganduje meets arrested suicide bomber

She said that she eventually ran away before security men rescued her around 11 p.m. and was taken to Hotoro Police Station in Kano.

A mother of three, the woman told newsmen at the Government House Kano, that suspected Boko Haram members kidnapped her on the way to hospital in Maiduguri.

“On our arrival in Kano, the vehicle (in which she was conveyed) developed a problem I gained my consciousness and found that my body was strapped with explosive belt.

“It is in the course of repairing the car that I learnt the kidnappers have stripped me of my cloth and explosive devices were strapped on me,’’ she said.

She said the kidnappers told her that she was to go to the famous Kantin Kwari Market in Kano for ``God’s mission''.

The commissioner urged the residents to be security conscious and report to the police whenever they noticed suspicious movements.

Gov. Ganduje also urged the populace to be very vigilant, especially at markets.

Ganduje said if the woman had not regained her consciousness, it could have been a different story.
