Two bombs exploded in Nigeria's restive north on Tuesday, killing one policeman in the city of Kaduna, hit hard by a wave of attacks claimed by Boko Haram Islamists, police said.
Two bombs were planted near a military checkpoint outside the main mosque in Kaduna's Unguwar Sarki area, police and residents said.
After the first bomb went off, soldiers at the checkpoint discovered a second explosive device and called the police anti-bomb squad, Kaduna state police spokesman Aminu Lawan told reporters.
"We lost one of our men from the police bomb disposal unit. He died when an explosive device he was trying to defuse exploded, killing him on the spot," Lawan said, adding that no other casualties were reported.
"As if he knew what was going to happen, the policeman ordered everyone to move back and as he leaned to take the bomb out of the bag, it exploded with a slam," resident Abdullahi Isa said, recounting the officer's death.
RIP to him.
