Suicide car bombers hit MTN phone switch centre and Airtel office in Kano
| December 22, 2012
The Airtel office in Kano and an MTN phone switch centre in the Mai Mailari area of the Kano have been hit by two suicide car bombers. A police spokesperson said that no civilians were killed. The source said military men were able to shoot and kill the bomber in the car that hit the Airtel office before the bomb exploded and at the MTN office, the car hit a fence but no civilians were killed. One security guard was injured and has been taken to the hospital. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, so far, but most people suspect that the islamist sect, Boko Haram, is responsible. Boko Haram has previously blown up phone masts and offices of GSM companies to disable security agencies ability to track their members. Boko Haram wants to impose strict Islamic law in Nigeria and has been leaving a trail of violence and destruction in multiple attacks on civilians and government offices, with since it began its uprising in 2009. Human Rights Watch says at least 2,800 people have died since then. Security in Kano has been heightened as the Christmas season approaches. Armed police have been guarding major churches and police checkpoints have been set up around the city.

Very soon Boko Haram and Kidnapping will become the things of the past, as blood that covered them has been called back to heaven but the nature will fight with angels for Allah Jehovah Passover God of Death of Israel to get a place in Nigeria with refinery.

The refinery is a mystery both spiritual and physical.
