I had gone with friends to get pork (at Digida Pork Joint). So I had just set off, about 10 minutes, from Digida and had just reached Prime Petrol Station when the blast went off.
I don’t know how I survived, I think it’s God’s grace walai. I usually spend a lot of time there but this time I ordered and asked them to pack. Just after receiving the package I decided to head to Bukoto, and BOOM!!Danra
