A blast explosion ripped through a car park outside Pantam stadium where President Goodluck Jonathan had just addressed a re-election campaign rally today Monday, 2nd Feb. The blast occured about 3 minutes after he left the campaign venue! According to reports, the bomb was planted in a stationed tricycle. 5 people have been confirmed dead! What a close call for Mr President!
The president had just passed the parking lot and we were trailing behind his convoy when the explosion happened… just 100 metres (yards) from the bus we were driving in.”
