ABEOKUTA — A man who said his brother was one of those that lost their lives in a bomb blast, Monday, at Sabongari in Kano State, has said that he counted no fewer than 50 dead bodies in a mortuary in the city.
The witness who simply identified himself as Godwin, from Edo State claimed that his dead brother wore number 38 tag at the mortuary in Kano State with more bodies in the morgue.
He said his brother was a member of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, whom he said was mobilised from Ebonyi State where he schooled to serve in Kano State.
Godwin who spoke on phone on a live radio progamme ‘Day Break Show’ in Abeokuta, yesterday, said though normalcy had since returned to the troubled area, there was still feeling of insecurity among non-indigenes in the state capital.
He said: “As I’m speaking, I am at the mortuary to collect my brother’s corpse and he is number 38 and I can see more bodies.
“The total figure is about 50. The 12 causalities claimed by the government is not correct.
“Kano has been peaceful in the last three months, but, with this latest one, we are again living in fear. Even though we were born here, we still see ourselves as non-indigenes, which should not be. It is terrible and worrisome here.”
