Naij.com reader Adamu Abdullahi Adamu witnessed the deadly incident as he was in the area to collect his OMR from WAEC official when the bom went off. The first thing I did was call my significant other, Zainab, to ensure she was okay. There are so many casuallities! Most of them female students, some were there for admission exercise. Parts of human bodies lay scattered around. I can’t imagine how a sensible person could do such a thing. Many parents whose sons and daughters were in the area are panicking. The police commissioner and secruty agencies are evacuting the victims.
