An explosion suspected to be a bomb early in the morning rocked Dumez street off Benin Auchi Road, Edo State.

Naija News gathered that over six houses were affected by the explosion which occurred at No 4, Dumez Street while its impacts were visible in about six houses in the area.

Operatives of the Nigeria Police were already on ground to ascertain the cause of the explosion.

When contacted, the Commissioner of Police, Lawal Jimeta said an investigation was already on the matter.

One of the landlords whose house was affected, Pastor David Iginua told Vanguard that he heard a very loud sound that early morning of Friday and he decided to go out to find out what it was all about.

He said: “I am Pastor David Iginua and my house is 42, Arete Street, off Benin Auchi road, Eyean, which is just behind where the explosion took place .

“As I sat there, all of a sudden, I heard a terrific sound. I looked, ran inside, I didn’t see what happened.

“So I have to come outside and I started discovering things.

“So I started looking for where the sound came from but just to discover that a cloud of heavy smoke was coming out from the Muslim man compound.

“From the rumours, we are hearing is that the man use to manufacture bombs.

“And it is like he tested it inside his well. Assuming he brought it out, it would have finished the community.

“The way this house shook, everybody came out to say how their houses shook”, he said.
