Kaduna (Nigeria), Feb 18: A Nigerian policeman with the bomb squad was killed on Tuesday while trying to defuse an explosive device in the north-central region of the country.


The first of two planted bombs exploded near a military checkpoint outside the main mosque in the Unguwar Sarki area of Kaduna, prompting soldiers to search for further bombs. After locating the second device, which was packaged inside a plastic bag, officers reported it to the police's bomb squad.

Kaduna Police command spokesman Aminu Lawan told Channels Television that a member of their bomb squad unit died when he attempted to defuse it, causing it to explode. The victim was not immediately identified.
