Affirming Kanu’s tweet, Chief Jimoh Adegbeji, the Baale of Soba town, the community where an explosion occurred last Sunday in Lagos and also a member of the committee set up on the incident, in an interview with Sunday Vanguard, said what happened in Abule Ado was a bomb attack.

Asked how he received the news, the Baale said: “I didn’t receive any news, I was an eye witness. When I heard the bomb explosion, everybody ran out.”

On why he described the explosion at Abule Ado as a bomb explosion, he said: “Yes, it was a bomb explosion because the sound was so loud that even those in Badagry heard it.  It was only one explosion but the level of damages was unimaginable. If it was more than one, the whole of Amowu Odofin would have been brought down.

Speaking on the casualties of the unfortunate incident, the Baale said: “For now, officials are saying 20 persons, but I believe they are more than that. We are yet to confirm and we still have casualties in hospitals.”
