The BBC's Yusuf Yakasai in the city says there is pandemonium with people running all over the place and plumes of smoke rising into the sky.

One of the blasts hit the federal police headquarters in the city and two other police stations, he says.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Islamist militants have been behind a recent campaign of violence in the mainly Muslim north.

Our reporter says there is also a shoot-out going on at the police's state head office in the east of the city.

The blasts targeted different neighbourhoods of the city.

So far he is aware of explosions at the federal police headquarters in the west of the city, one police station in the centre, and another police station in the south.

Man! Sounds like a mass, multi point attack, in different places, all at once.


Worth reporting I thought, but no one ever seems to give a darn about much of anything that happens in Africa. Thread fail. Advanced notice.

I jus' wanna know where tha oil.
Give me dat oil.

This is really tragic though. I don't know why the suspected islamic militant group would be attacking a mostly muslim region, but nothing they do makes any sense.

bunch of YAHOOS

Don't worry, the pro-islam apologists will soon be here to explain that it has nothing to do with islam or muslims and that Israel is obviously setting them up.

Actions such as this are tragic regardless of where it occurs and it's pathetic that people feel that they have to resort to such things to make a point. Honestly, I'm so sick of the conditions here in the US that I'm looking forward to the day SHTF here.
