An eyewitness, Musa Ali, told Vanguard he narrowly escaped death during the blast.

According to him;  ” I am a truck conductor and my truck was on the queue. I was walking towards Folawiyo Junction when I heard the explosion. I thought it was an earthquake. When I looked up I saw a large ball of fire at the spot where I was to buy food and a woman in front of me was badly injured.”
