It was gathered that the incident occurred at about 9:35pm at a location close to the First Roundabout leading to the Taraba State University, causing damage to some shops and residential buildings in the area.
Eyewitnesses at the scene of the blast claimed that the bomb was planted behind a drinking joint.
“A little baby of about four years was at the shop sleeping when the wall collapsed,” said a local who does not want to be named. “Luckily, she survived it and is receiving medical attention at a hospital.”
Residents, on their part, have expressed fears over what could befall them again, saying Sunday’s incident was the fourth in the chain of explosions that have rocked the state since the beginning of the year.
