566

A devastating explosion of devices believed to be bombs have rocked Ondo State along the Akure-Owo-Benin highway.

The blasts left a big hole in the highway where the bomb exploded.

ElombahNews gathered that several persons were injured in the explosion including a church .

It was learnt that a total of 17 buildings inside the church promises were affected.

Vehicular traffic has been diverted to the old Akure-Benin road.

Many residents in Akure said they heard the explosion.

Security sources explained that a truck was carrying explosives and it caught fire, causing the explosion.

Those who heard noise of the explosion, however, said it happened once, thereby discrediting the explanation of “explosives”.
