A bomb blast has just occurred at the gate of Emab plaza, beside Banex shopping complex Banex Plaza in Wuse 2, Abuja.
Residents and peeps are fleeing the area for dear life and six people have been confirmed dead and taken to the mall with at least 17 people injured including a white man with a broken leg!!!
Eyewitnesses said there are body parts scattered around the scene of the blast.
The explosion occurred at about 4p.m at the gate of the busy plaza and traders at the plaza, who were in tears, say the blast apparently went off in a car that was driving into the mall.
National Emergency Management Agency say they are unable to confirm the casualty rate just yet. But they are evacuating victims to the nearby Maitama District Hospital.
Emergency officials also reportedly arrived without adequate material. “Tell Joseph to come with enough dead body bags,” an emergency official was heard telling his colleagues.
A Vanguard reporter on the scene said
“I can see human parts and some bodies scattered on the ground but we are too scared to get closer for fear of another bomb..Many traders and visitors to the mall are still trapped in the burning building,”
