Two male occupants of the rented apartment in the area were killed in the explosion. It was also alleged that the victims who are reportedly on DSS wanted list, returned to Keffi from their journey on Saturday afternoon.
Eyewitnesses told the publication that the victims noticed that the DSS operatives had surrounded their house, hence, they had no option rather than to blow off themselves with an explosive. Security operatives were at the scene of the incident to evacuate the dead bodies.
