Panic as explosion rocks Abuja

share on:

There was panic in the Kurudu, Jikoyi community in the outskirt of Abuja this morning after a loud explosion was heard. Residents in the area were reportedly seen running for safety when they heard the loud bang.

It was initially thought to be a bomb blast but a Nigerian Army spokesman assured people that it was not a terrorist attack but a construction effort as a rock blocking a new road under construction from Karishi to Apo in the Abuja city centre, was blasted with dynamites to help free the road and allow construction to continue.
