Vanguard reports that the explosion occurred at about
8:30pm and affected four buildings, including two banks. No fewer than four
people were killed in the explosion. Boko Haram is yet to be linked to this attack!
An eyewitness, Musa Ali, told
Vanguard he narrowly escaped death during the blast.
According to him;  ” I am a
truck conductor and my truck was on the queue. I was walking towards Folawiyo
Junction when I heard the explosion. I thought it was an earthquake. When I
looked up I saw a large ball of fire at the spot where I was to buy food and a
woman in front of me was badly injured.”

Details shortly…
