According to him, a friend had to provide accommodation for him and his wife after the explosion on Tuesday night.
Speaking with newsmen, the former deputy governor noted that property worth millions of naira was destroyed in his house as a result of the incident.
He said: “I am one of the residents of Dejo Oyelese Close. My house was affected.
“We were just watching the football match when the explosion occurred. All the doors that were closed were forced open.
“It was very devastating. All the doors, burglaries, windows and even the roof have gone. We give glory to God that me and my wife were not hurt.”
“I am just coming back now because we can’t sleep here again. We couldn’t sleep here yesterday. We had to use our phone to move out yesterday.”
