The policemen who were stationed at the Eid prayer ground near North-West University in Kofar-Nasarawa in the ancient city of Kano were astonished when a teenage girl, clad in a brown hijab, walked confidently and hurriedly towards them where they were stationed in order to monitor the activities in the environment.
Apparently unsuspecting that danger was approaching them, the policemen handled her presence with levity. When she got too close for comfort, the policemen queried her.  But rather than stop, she kept moving towards them. Speaking to Sunday Trust on their encounter with the young lady, who later became a suicide bomber, one of the policemen said when the girl refused to stop, they activated their guns.
“At first, we thought she wanted to come and give us a report about a security breach around the place, but when she moved quickly towards us, we all activated our guns. Yet, she didn’t stop,” the policeman said.  “When we asked her to stop, she refused. She rather told us in Hausa that if we wanted to kill her we should.”
The policeman said it was while the conversation was going on that a loud bang tore through the air, such that they all had to dive to take cover.
“We took cover, but we all sustained injuries. We went down flat because we were afraid that her colleagues may be nearby,” he said.
Contrary to an earlier report that the female suicide bombers activated bombs from their armpit, the policeman told our reporter that the teenager’s  two hands were by her sides when the explosion occurred.
The policeman described the girl as slim, tall and fair in complexion and that her spoken Hausa was good.
“The way she spoke to us in Hausa, that we should kill her if we wanted, showed that she had a good grasp of the language,” he said.
The encounter between policemen and a teenage female suicide bomber was the first to hit the already traumatised city of Kano.
