Abuja: Bodies of victims who lost their lives in the coordinated terror attacks in northern Nigeria were given mass burial on Wednesday at the village of Kalebawa on the outskirts of Kano city.
Identified bodies were given to the bereaved families while those unidentified were conveyed from Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital mortuary to the burial site.
Sources at Murtala Mohammed Hospital informed that over 50 bodies were carried in two vehicles for burial after the traditional ruler of Kano Emir Ado Bayero had led other emirs on a sympathy visit to the hospital.
Earlier, the police gave a breakdown of death toll saying 150 civilians, 29 officers of the police, three members of the country's secret State Security Service, two officers of the immigrations' service and a customs officer were killed.
The toll now stands at 185 though medical and humanitarian workers say the number may increase as more bodies are brought into hospital mortuaries.
Meanwhile, at least 15 explosions were heard on Wednesday from an area where there is police station, residents said, adding that the explosions were followed by gunshots.
A night time curfew remains in place even as the police launched a massive search operation for members of Boko Haram Islamic sect that claimed responsibility for the wave of attacks on Friday.
