The attack happened in the village of Dakasoye, about 13 miles (20 km) south of Kano, during a march by followers of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria.

 

“Our procession came under a suicide attack,” said Muhammad Turi, who was leading thousands of people from Kano to Zaria, in the neighbouring state of Kaduna.

 

“We lost 21 people and several others have been injured. We are not surprised that we’ve been attacked because this is the situation all over the country. This will not deter us from our religious observance. Even if all of us were bombed the last person will carry on with this duty.”
