At least one person has reportedly sustained injuries in an explosion that hit Dawaki in the Bwari Local Government Area of Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory.

Bellnews gathered that the incident happened at about 8:30 am on Friday.

One of the residents of the area told Bellnews that there was a loud bang at a one-bedroom apartment that had two male occupants.

The resident said though an occupant claimed that it was a cooking gas explosion, there was no smell of gas.

The source said, “We heard a loud blast sound within Dawaki. The noise emanated from a one-bedroom apartment with two male occupants. One of the occupants was injured and taken to the National Hospital, Abuja for treatment.

“The second occupant alleged that it was a cooking gas explosion. However, there was no smell of gas, no fire, and the kitchen window (circled in the picture) was spared while other windows of the flat were damaged.

“Issue already incidented at Dwaki police station. However, I am of the opinion that a bomb ordnance squad from the FCT command needs to visit the scene to assert the true cause of this early explosion.”

However, all efforts to reach Josephine Adeh, the FCT police spokesperson, were not successful as she didn’t answer calls or reply to messages sent to her mobile line.
