REVEALED!!! A Vehicle Transporting Explosives Caused The Explosion In Akure – Says Governor Akeredolu

Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has said that the explosion that rocked some parts of the state capital, Akure, in the early hours of Saturday March 28, was caused by a vehicle transporting explosives to a neighboring state.

The governor who visited the scene this morning, said security chiefs in the state told him that the vehicle developed a fault in transit.

I have been briefed by the security chiefs that in the early hours of Saturday March 28th, a vehicle in a convoy transporting explosives to a storage facility in a neighbouring state developed a fault while in transit along the Akure Owo Road about 2km from the Akure Airport.

Security personnel and other individuals transporting the ordinances noticed smoke from the vehicle. After several attempts to extinguish the resulting fire failed, the vehicle and its consignment ignited causing a massive explosion that was felt in Akure and its environs.

Presently, efforts are being made to ascertain if there are casualties. Following my visit to the scene, I have directed that the area be cordoned off to allow the explosive ordinance department/bomb squad to extricate the vehicle buried underground because… is unclear if there are still explosives that are yet to be detonated . Everything is under control and I will be updating the public on any new developments. he wrote on Twitter
