The blast was allegedly targeted at suspected bandits who have been terrorizing residents along the border areas linking Nasarawa and Benue states, see graphic photos.
The State Police Command's spokesperson, DSP Ramhan Nansel, verified this in a statement on January 25, 2023, and stated that the tragic incident happened on January 24, 2023, in the Rukubi community of the Doma LGA.
