The Federal Government yesterday said the blast that rocked Agbedegbede area of Osun State on Tuesday was caused by carbide as neither the ground where the explosion occurred nor the building within the vicinity were affected by the explosion.

The Coordinator of the National Briefing Centre, Mike Omeri, who spoke on security situation across the country on Wednesday, said from the investigation conducted by the security agencies, the explosion was neither a bomb nor dynamite.

Omeri said, “There was a report of a non lethal explosion from an object which was investigated by security agencies at Agbedegbede Street, Ile-ife, Osun State. The outcome of the investigation indicated that the explosion was neither a bomb nor dynamite, but carbide. This was because neither the ground where the explosion occurred nor the building within the vicinity were affected by the explosion. Also, no life was lost in the incident.”
