The National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) as of Sunday evening put the death toll at 15, a family of 4 and 11 others.

In the explosion a stunning newly married couple met their untimely death. The pregnant woman identified as Chisom Udoakonobi was reported killed alongside her husband, who is also a first class graduate.
