One of the victims at Nyanya Park, Kunle Bamidele, told Channels Television that he was on a queue to get on a bus when he and other passengers heard a loud blast and scampered to safety.
Channels Television also spoke to the Head of Anti-Terror Unit of the NSCDC,  whose men have been at the scene to control the situation.

“We are here as first responded to try to mitigate the situation on the humanitarian intervention… It is a suspicion that it was a bomb placed on the ground, so we have asked the office to send in more people so that we can take care of this crowd control in case of the unfortunate again.”
