Barely two weeks after an explosion rocked Abule-Ado in Lagos, another explosion suspected to be a bomb blast destroyed residential buildings, a school, churches in Akure, Ondo state.

The explosion occurred in the early hours of Saturday, March 28, 2020.

The explosion which happened at a community less than a kilometre to Akure Airport is currently causing traffic in the area as it cut off the busy Akure-Owo road.

According to Nigerian Tribune, the blast affected many residents of Eleyowo community in the state, destroying close to one hundred houses, churches and a school with boarding facilities.

Many people who lived within the church premises were reportedly injured while some were rescued by the people of the community.
