A massive explosion on Friday rocked the Secretariat of the Isoko Development Union in Oleh, a university town in Delta State, witnesses have told PREMIUM TIMES.

The huge blaze ripped through the facility, popularly known as Isoko House, hours after the union began its annual conference there.

Witnesses said the incident appeared to be a coordinated attack, but added that no group has claimed responsibility as at 5:00 p.m. Friday.

The Niger Delta, where Delta State is situated in Nigeria’s oil-rich south, has witnessed an escalation of hostilities in recent months, as militants targeted oil installations in a sustained effort to force the hands of the Nigerian government to up the region’s share of oil revenues.

Meanwhile, the union has resumed the event with its annual award ceremony currently underway, the witness said.

    I don’t know how these leaders can sleep with no steady water supply and power supply to the people they govern. When rivers are flowing in many villages to build Water Towers from. And sun is shinning to tap solar from. They keep worrying about the big Bs (BBB) and C. Biafra, Bokoharam and Buhari. And Corruption. No one cares about these. Their time will come and go and the people suffering is number one fro no light and water to power development. People, market women travel on River Niger from Agenegbode to Onitsha and return in one hour. From Benin to Onitsha market lets say Onitsha market is in Biafra in 3 hours. Don’t sleep until water and light is helping the people you govern.
