Suicide bombers have attacked the building of Airtel telecommunications company near Mallam Kato Square, Sabon Gari, Kano injuring an unconfirmed number of people.
According to Bayo Osho, an Airtel staff who survived the attack, two suicide bombers in separate cars carried out the attack.
He said the first car rammed the gate before a second car, laden with explosives, drove into the building.
The driver of the second car then came out and exchanged gunfire with the security personnel before the explosives went off.
Firefighters are fighting the blaze even as officers of the Joint Task Force (JTF) have cordoned off the area.
Another blast went off somewhere else in the city about 10 minutes ago but we are yet to ascertain the exact location.
