At least 28 worshippers, who reportedly sustained serious injuries, have been rushed to Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital in Kano.



When Daily Trust visited the scene on Wednesday morning, a resident, Ibrahim Jibrin, said, “I was about going to the mosque when I saw a boy running engulfed by fire shouting for help.



We didn’t know what was happening before then. This is the third time he would attack people here. He had once hit two of his elder brothers and took himself to the Police Station, claiming that he had killed them.”
