Some 15 people were killed and at least 123 others were injured in the latest bomb attack at a mobile phone market in Kano, CNN reported, citing Kano state police commissioner Muhammad Musa Katsina.
Police believe that the girls were taken to the site by a minivan that reportedly was carrying four other minor suicide bombers, according to CNN. Authorities are searching for that vehicle.
On Tuesday, an alleged Boko Haram suicide bomber attack in Yola killed more than 30 people and injured 72 others. It is not clear whether it was a suicide bomber or a planted explosive device.
Not a single terror group has taken responsibility for the attacks, but as BBC noted, the Boko Haram militant group has been known for attacks on Kano.
In November 2014, more than 100 people were killed at the city’s central mosque.
