Apart from IED materials, police recovered from the vehicle, two AK-47 rifles, four AK-47 magazines, two pistols, as well as one thousand and ninety-eight rounds of live ammunition.
The state police commissioner, Sumaila Dikko, on Sunday said the vehicle loaded with the explosives was heading towards Jigawa state.
According to Dikko, police chased the vehicles which were later abandoned.
The police chief also said two arrests have been made in connection with last Tuesday’s gas explosion at Sabongari axis of Kano metropolis.
