About 25 people were killed and 32 injured in Zaria bombing

Above is the statement tweeted by the state governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai
At least 25 people were killed when a bomb blast ripped through a packed government office in Zaria, northern Nigeria, on Tuesday, in a suspected suicide attack likely to be blamed on Boko Haram.

The explosion occurred at about 9:00 am (0800 GMT), as primary school teachers and public sector workers were queueing for identity checks, according to witnesses.

“I am sad to confirm that an IED (improvised explosive device) most likely carried by a suicide bomber exploded in the Sabon Gari LG (local government district) and killed 25 people, including a two-year-old,” Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai said.

El-Rufai added in the statement posted on his Facebook account that 32 others were injured and were being treated in hospital.
