Jalingo, the Taraba State capital was  on Sunday thrown into confusion after an explosive device suspected to be a bomb exploded in the State capital.
The incident which happened around 9:35pm near the First Roundabout leading to the Taraba State University, damaged some shops and residential buildings.
The bomb was allegedly planted behind a drinking joint, witnesses said.
An eyewitness told Channels TV, “A little baby of about four years was at the shop sleeping when the wall collapsed,” said a local who does not want to be named. “Luckily, she survived it and is receiving medical attention at a hospital.”
Although no life was lost to the incident, the police have cordoned off the area to avert another blast just in case another device was planted nearby.
