Nigerian Army Confirms Minor Explosion in Ikeja Cantonment

The Nigerian Army has confirmed a minor explosion that occurred within the Nigerian Army Cantonment in Ikeja, Lagos, on Monday, April 1.

According to the Director of Army Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, the incident took place on a farmland near the Mammy Market within the cantonment.

Fortunately, no casualties were recorded. In a statement released on Monday evening, the Nigerian Army assured the general public that the situation is under control.

The explosion is suspected to have been triggered by the burning of refuse and other inflammable debris by a farmer who cultivated the farmland.

Given the historical antecedent of explosions within the cantonment, the Nigerian Army understands that there may be concerns among the public.

However, it is important to note that the cantonment was recently cleared and certified free of unexploded ordnances.

To address these concerns, the Nigerian Army has taken immediate action.

The NA Engineers Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team has cordoned off the area of the farmland to conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the explosion.

This will ensure that any potential risks are identified and mitigated. The Nigerian Army urges residents in the general area not to panic and assures them of their safety.

The prompt response and ongoing investigation demonstrate the commitment of the Nigerian Army to maintaining the security and well-being of the public.
