PO2 Karen Quijal of the Maramag municipal police station told ABS-CBN News that the exposion occured in the rear portion of the RTMI bus at around 12:15 in the afternoon.

The bus was from Tacurong and bound for Cagayan de Oro City, the report said.

The Dologon Maramag Bukidnon Facebook page posted that the bombing incident happened near the Baptist Church.

It said the injured victims were initially brought to the Central Mindanao University (CMU) Hospital for treatment, but two of them were referred later to Sanitarium Hospital in Valencia City. Both were reportedly subjected to surgery due to metal objects found in their bodies, as seen in the X-ray.

The other one was taken to Bukidnon Provincial Hospital (BPH) in Maramag and sent home after treatment. Another patient was also discharged after receiving first aid, the page added.

An investigation to determine the type of explosive device used is reportedly underway.
