Residence of Azaka, Iguiye and neighbouring communities around the Ovia River in Edo state were thrown into panic last night ( FRIDAY) as heavy explosion erupted at a facility of the Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) in the area.

It was suspected that a valve station located around a power line was damaged by the explosion.

what caused the explosion was not clear at the time of this report on Saturday morning, some locals told our reporter that they suspect that it was bombed by Niger Delta militants whose activities on oil installations have crippled the economy.

“We saw pieces of gas cylinder and other things that might have been used to blow up the station,” a residence who do not want his name in print said.

Mr. Anthony Odoyibo, a well known farmer in the area, confirmed the report and appealed to Nigerians to give peace a chance.

“We heard a very loud explosion around 10 or 11pm. Everybody was thrown into panic. Some people who went there confirmed that it was the pipeline that was blown up,” Odoyibo added.

However, no militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack at the time of this report.
