KANO, Nigeria -- A suicide car bomber detonated himself in Nigeria's northern state of Kano  with at least 60 people killed and many injured, local residents and military spokesperson said. State Chairman for the Ohanaeze Ndigbo group Tobias Idika said up to 60 people were killed and five luxury buses were burnt to ashes.

Idika said the entire bus went up in flame with many of the victims inside the vehicle.
The bomb went off when a Lagos-bound luxury bus, loaded with passengers, was about to leave the motor park, Idika said.

But the Joint Security Task Force (JTF) spokesman, Captain Ikedichi Iweha, said he would not rush to release casualty figures.
Frequent attacks have been recorded in Kano State, a highly populated city in Nigeria. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the blast.
