A one-year-old baby was feared dead  and others wounded following an explosion which occurred at Eke Ozi market in  Igboeze North Local Government area of Enugu State, on Friday, July 18, 2014.

The incident which occurred at about 2:00p.m few meters to the divisional police headquarters at Ogrute was suspected to be bomb  blast  making the market women and traders  run for safety.

Reports revealed that the baby was trampled upon, while hoodlums had a field day looting shops, during the stampede, which lasted for some while.

Although commercial activities had resumed in the market when Saturday Tribune visited the scene, several traders were  seen lamenting  their  loss.

It was gathered that the people of the area had been apprehensive, since the reports that some people suspected to belong to the   Boko Hram sect were arrested at Obolo Afor community by the police last month.

Both Enugu Ezike and Obolo Afor are border towns between  Benue and Enugu states.

Attempts to reach the state Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amarizu for comment proved abortive.
