The Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu has visited the scene of the early morning explosion in Akure.

The Governor in a statement after touring the area said;

“Presently, efforts are being made to ascertain if there are  casualties. Following my visit to the scene, I have directed that the area be cordoned off to allow the explosive ordinance department/bomb squad to extricate the vehicle buried underground because”..
