Eyewitness accounts say as traders were getting to their shops at the market early Monday morning, they saw a suspicious bag infront of a shop. The bag contained clothes and other suspicious items inside as a pastor came closer, identified explosive contents and made a prayer. A source adds that a boy in the crowd pulled the bag and threw far away causing the explosive device to detonate. No casualty was recorded as forces of law and order immediately arrived at the scene of the incident and took the bag away.
