Global Affairs Canada, the government department responsible for international relations, released a statement confirming that an investigation is already underway to determine the cause of the explosion. Preliminary indications suggest that this was an accident rather than a deliberate act.

The explosion originated in a generator room within the High Commission located in the capital city, Abuja. Unfortunately, two other individuals were injured in the incident. However, the statement assures that all other embassy staff members are safe and unharmed.
