The statement read: “The PDP insists that a forensic investigation is imperative given the spate of such explosions in various parts of our country in recent time.

“The party called on the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, to immediately move in and commence the handling of emergency issues in the area, as well as ensuring adherence to health safety directives, particularly as the nation is still battling with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The PDP commiserates with the victims of the blast while urging Nigerians to continue to be vigilant and prayerful for the safety of lives in our country,” the statement read in part.
