    I pray for the quick recovery of the victims. It should not take the country long time to let us know the cause of the explosion, so that efforts could be intensified at preventing re-occurence.

    We can only pray for a quick recovery of the victims.
    However it beats me as to how some people report there were no casualties. Some report 4, some 30, some uncountable. Why cant we in Nigeria give proper news. Miscommunication is one of the few major sources of all our problems.
