75-Year Old Alhaji Mo­hammed Isa Tiga – How I Survived Kano Central Mosque Blast


A 75-year-old sur­vivor of the No­vember 28 mul­tiple bomb explosions in Kano, Alhaji Mo­hammed Isa Tiga, yes­terday gave a blood­chilling account of the attack that rocked the city’s Central Mosque, saying he survived by Allah’s grace.

Speaking to Sunday Sun at the Accident and Emergency Unit of the Abdullahi Wase Specialist (Nassarawa) Hospital, the frail-looking man recount­ed that those responsible for the blasts came in a Toyota Sienna space wag­on just as the Jumat prayers were about to start. He recalled seeing three of them, adding that while two sat at the back of the vehicle, only one was seat­ed at the front.

According to him, as soon as they arrived, they stepped out of the car like normal worshippers and looked every bit like wor­shippers until they began to op­erate.

“I was close by. I saw the three of them alight from the car. A few min­utes after they walked away from the vehicle, the bombs ex­ploded,”

He recalled that confusion ensued. “As peo­ple tried to run away, the young men pulled out their guns and were shooting at those struggling to escape from the blast.”

Isa Tiga suf­fered injuries in the confu­sion, stressing that his sur­vival was a miracle.He could not say what eventually happened to the three men.
