The explosion went off at a park popularly called Mun Garage at about 9am this morning in the state capital. A witness who said he was lucky to survive the incident said he saw about a dozen bodies covered with blood littering the scene.
“I thank God for sparing my life. I don’t know if it is a suicide bomber, we just heard the blast and I saw my self covered with dust,” a local trader Usman Kachalla told PT.
An official of the Civilian-JTF, Alhaji Khalil, also confirmed the incident.
“Yes there was a blast early this morning outside Muna Garage along Mafa road. We have sent our operatives down there; but we have not confirmed the casualty.”
