A Samsung Galaxy S7 has reportedly exploded in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria. According to a tweet by a twitter user with the twitter ID @peekaymila reported this on his handle on the 15th of May, 2018.

Efforts to ascertain reason for the current explosion in Abuja proved abortive. If you watch and listen carefully to the video above, the owner was asked either he was charging the phone before the explosion or not, and he responded No.
Few hours after the tweet went viral, Samsung support unit responded to the tweet. See their conversation:
Thank you for confirming that. Since our team supports US-based devices, I need to refer you to your local support team to get this taken care of as quickly as possible. You can find the contact info for your local team, here: https://t.co/ZdtcJA0aU3 . ^Jay
From the conversation above, it is obvious that SamsungMobile is ready to come into the case fully, which should earn the friend of @peekaymila a brand new Galaxy device, if the incident investigation is proved in his favor.
After the video went viral, a popular controversial tithe preacher @DaddyFRZ, also responded to the tweet saying;
I have been vindicated! – Samsung, see your life? This could have been me o! – Wicked people asked why I collected IPhoneX I should let this same Samsung Galaxy S7 explode in my face abi? – My God that answereth by fire o! The God of the #FreeNation is indeed the one true God! pic.twitter.com/qzIRWYFnX6
I have been vindicated!

Wicked people asked why I collected IPhoneX I should let this same Samsung Galaxy S7 explode in my face abi?
My God that answereth by fire o!
The God of the #FreeNation is indeed the one true God!
From his tweet, it is obvious that he’s also had his own share of experience with Samsung device’s explosion. He also gave silent credit to Apple iPhone X in his tweet. But it important to note that both Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, etc, are guilty of smartphone explosion.
