The explosion occurred at the dry fish section of the park.

It could not be immediately ascertained what could have led to the explosion or those behind it.

Our correspondent who visited the area reports that the stretch of shops and businesses on both sides of the streets leading to the market was closed.

When contacted, the spokesman of the state Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni asked our correspondent to send a text message, but he was yet to respond to it at the time of filing this report.
