An Improvised Explosive Device (IED) laden Golf 3 vehicle has been intercepted by the Kano State Police Command at Inuwa Village in Ungoggo Local Government Area of the state.
Addressing a news conference on Wednesday, the State Police Commissioner, Musa Daura said the occupants of the vehicle are now at large but were badly injured during a gun duel with the police.
According to the commissioner, the vehicle was arrested yesterday at about 9:30am following a tip off from some members of the public and various IEDs were recovered from the vehicle.
The intentions of the suspects according to Mr Daura were to cause havoc and destablise peace which will subsequently lead to economic and social sabotage in Kano state.
He further said that the area where the vehicle was intercepted was completely sealed off while urging members of the public to report any suspicious movement around the area.
