No one died from the explosion.

An explosion occurred at about 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday around a major u-turn along Nnamdi Azikwe way, Kaduna, North-West Nigeria.

The State Commissioner of Police, Umar Shehu, who confirmed the incident to newsmen said no death was recorded.

“There was an explosion , but only two people sustained injury and are receiving treatment at the hospital,” he said.

Security agents have cordoned the area , causing serious traffick grid around the area.

Though the cause of the explosion is yet to be established, a resident of the area, Musa, told PREMIUM TIMES that it was not caused by bomb.

He said it was the hot, big tea kettle used by a tea and bread seller (mai tea) that exploded while on fire; and that pandemonium ensued as residents thought it was a bomb.
