He explained that a closed-circuit TV in one of the affected houses gave footage of how the incident happened.

He said the government would also check the immigration status of all the people of interest since the majority of the suspects quizzed were from Mali.

The chairman of the Nigeria Institute of Structural Engineers, Mbim Okutinyang, the lead coordinator of the team that carried out structural integrity on the affected houses, also told journalists that 282 houses were affected.

Mr Alonge said the site of the incident had been cleared in terms of radioactivity, as the EOC invited the Nigerian Nuclear Regulatory Agency (NNRA) to conduct another screening.
