The Nigerian Army has allayed fears over a minor explosion that took place on Monday, the 1st April 2024, within the Nigerian Army (NA) Cantonment in Ikeja, Lagos. The incident occurred on a farmland near the Mammy Market within the Cantonment.

According to the Director, Army Public Relations, Major General Onyema, the explosion is suspected to have been triggered by the burning of refuse and other inflammable debris by a farmer who cultivated the farmland.

He said, fortunately, no casualty was recorded in the incident. He explained that the Cantonment was recently cleared and certified free of unexploded ordnances, although he said they understood that there could be concerns among the general public as a result of the historical antecedent of explosion within the Cantonment.

He concluded that the Nigerian Army therefore assured the public that the situation was under control as the Nigerian Army 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. We urge residents in the general area not to panic and assure them of their safety.
