An explosion occurred this morning under the popular Festac Bridge off the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway in Lagos, Nigeria's former capital.
A middle aged businessman, Oladele Pius has been confirmed dead. It is said that he was passing by when the bomb exploded a few metres away from his office and he died on the spot. However there hasn't been any confirmation as to whether he was the actual target of the planted bomb or it was only a coincident. Pius was survived by his two wives and five children.
A police officer was also reported injured as a result of the explosion. But the Anti-Bomb Squad of the Nigeria Police arrived at the scene.
