President Jonathan has ordered the immediate probe of the Sunday bomb blast that killed five persons in the Sabon Gari area of Kano.
The President handed down the order during a meeting with service chiefs in his office shortly after his arrival from France during which he held a security meeting with some heads of states on how to end insurgency by Boko Haram in the country.
Apart from summoning the security heads to a meeting to review the security situation in the country, Jonathan appealed to Nigerians to remain united against the Boko Haram, which he described as the al Qaeda of West Africa.
“President Jonathan calls on Nigerians to remain united against the al Qaeda of West Africa alias Boko Haram and all enemies of the state,” said presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati.
“The President has also ordered a thorough investigation into the Kano bomb blast and asked the security chiefs to act quickly,” the spokesman added.
