As a result, only the two bombers died in the explosion, while eight others including a personnel of NDLEA sustained injuries, and are responding to treatment.
The vehicle, a golf taxi with reg. no XA 479 DRZ laden with bags of charcoal with two female passengers and a Tricycle keke Napep close to the scene were affected by the explosion.
The scene has since been rendered safe by police EOD team and normalcy restored to the area.
