A source who spoke with DailyPost at a nearby Plaza said the blast shook the entire Wuse 2, hence there will definitely be casualties. She said “The blast was so heavy that it shook our plaza. I know many will be affected, but my friends and family members who work at the plaza have confirmed that they are safe.

Speaking with popular Abuja event consultant, Yankytech at the scene of the blast, he said his shop and staff were safe, but many people died in the blast. He said ” you can see obviously that casualty figure is high. There is no way a blast could go off at Banex that there won’t be casualty. What we are waiting for now is to confirm casualty figure.
@akusonhenry: This type of unwanted news is what that can't and be accepted by the Nigerian people because we're a people of unity, love and productivity. Now lets no more but our faith in the hands of God because He has already trusted us and given us every solution to any problem or challenge we have. The solution is within, is according to the power at work in us.(Eph 3:20).
