Two bomb blasts rocked the Kawo area of Kaduna in the afternoon of Wednesday, July 23, 2014.
The second, which occurred at Kawo area, was aimed at former Head of State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari.
Gunmen rammed a vehicle into his convoy, firing shots at it.
According to reports, two of Gen. Buhari’s bodyguards were slightly wounded in the attack, he however escaped unhurt.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on General Buhari. It is uncertain at this point if it was carried out by members of the Islamist extremist group, Boko Haram.
