A blast ripped through a busy textile market in the north Nigerian city of Kano on Wednesday, a trader and multiple online reports said.
The explosion happened in the Kantin Kwari market, which is typically packed with crowds of traders, shoppers as well as traffic.
"I heard a huge sound coming from the back of my shop along Unity Road. I just closed the shop and tried to leave because it's not safe," trader Nura Sadiq told AFP.
