oner Abubakar Tsav told Reuters. "Five of the people injured are military including a female soldier." Tsav said among those injured was a motorcyclist who was riding by at the time. Tsav said: "The device recovered was fortified with four-inch nails, apparently to cause maximum damage but fortunately no one was killed. Only one person has serious injuries." It was the fourth such explosion in Lagos since December. The police blame the opposition NADECO group for the string of explosions in politically volatile Nigeria and have detained 22 people. NADECO denies any involvement. Nigeria has been in crisis since a previous government annulled elections in 1993. Abacha, who seized power in the aftermath of the annulment
promises to hand over to a democratically-elected president next year and on Monday a 10-day registration of voters for elections starting from March commenced nationwide. The opposition, however, dismiss the transition to democracy as a ruse to perpetuate Abacha`s rule and point to a recent interview in which he did not exclude himself out from contesting next year`s presidential election.
