Nigeria police said on Monday that they thwarted a fresh attempt to detonate a car bomb in Kano, a day after a bombing killed four people in an area of the city attacked repeatedly by Boko Haram.

'The police in Kano today… (at) about 9:00am (0800 GMT) averted what could have been another devastating bomb blast in the ancient city of Kano,' a statement said.

The vehicle was packed with material for an improvised explosive device but was recovered and made safe before it could be detonated, they added. AFP
