Nigeria’s military said Muslim extremists on Monday night planted multiple bombs around a bar in the northern city of Kano.

A Christian leader says he carried three bodies from this week’s multiple blasts in the northern Nigerian city of Kano to a military hospital, raising the toll to at least 27 dead.

Tobias Itika of the Christian group Ohaeneze said on Friday the three were not counted in a toll from two other hospitals. He said other victims were treated at an orthopaedic hospital but he did not have an exact figure. Two other hospitals reported treating 20 wounded.

Nigeria’s military said Muslim extremists on Monday night planted multiple bombs around a Kano bar thronged with people.

On Tuesday night, extremists killed eight people in an attack targeting teachers and Muslim clerics in northeast Nigeria.

The military warned on Thursday of planned “massive attacks” in an ongoing uprising centred in Nigeria’s northeast.
