The sound and effect of the heavy explosion, were felt in the estate, leading to the resident rushing out to verify where it had come from, only to find them motionless. They were rushed out for medical treatment.

The Herald’s information is that a combined team of police and military personnel came to the site the following day, Wednesday, August 5, 2020 to detonate another one and retrieve the rest.

Many residents., who are living in fear, are asking why the security agencies, have remained tightlipped on the matter.

The explosion was described as very loud sending shivers and fear down the spine of the residents.

As the security agencies remain silent over the matter, there are, however, suspicions that the explosives were deliberately planted by a faction of the Abafom Clan in La.

There is said to be a fight over the land by members of the clan, and a faction is believed to have planted the explosives to deter the other claimants.

However, others also feel the explosive might have come from the sea.
