The explosion which occurred on Sunday morning, claiming and destroying a lot of properties also killed a Rev. Sister and a newly married pregnant first-class graduate at Abule Ado.

Rev. Henrietta Alokha was an administrator at Bethlehem Girls College, which was badly affected by the explosion, and Chisom Udoakonobi (a newly married pregnant first-class graduate) was also confirmed killed alongside her husband.

According to sources Henrietta Alokha was among those who assisted trapped students to escape from the scene but when it was time for her to leave, she could not make it out alive and also a couple of years ago, there was a less severe fire incident at the secondary school and the Rev. Sister was also there to evacuate students.
