Witnesses told PREMIUM TIMES a police post in the area was the target of the attack. Witnesses said two men riding on motorcycle hauled the explosives at the target around the densely populated Zoo road roundabout, injuring many persons.
Casualty rate is still unclear as sporadic gunshots were still heard around the area up till 7:30 a.m. But some residents in the area have since fled for fears of molestation by officers of the Joint Military Task Force, JTF, keeping the peace in the city.
