The loud explosion sound produced at about 7am in a Church compound hosting Presbyterian Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools and obviously a church house was sufficient generate fear causing undirected movements. That a stampede did not occur remains a mystery as kids who were already in school were forced in panic to attempt escaping by themselves or with the aid of parents who immediately rushed to school to take them home while those still coming simply made U-turns. In a narrative whose truism is yet to be ascertained, this reporter gathered from an unofficial police source at the scene that the explosion that occurred earlier was a security operation to deactivate an explosive planted earlier by unknown persons. Acco
