A beer parlour situated at the ancient town of Kabba in the Kogi West Senatorial District was rocked by another explosion on Sunday night.
The incident was confirmed by the Police spokesperson in the state, William Aya who noted that there was no casualty in the explosion.
“The explosion happened at one Omofemi Bar at Okepadi Quarters, Kabba, around 9.15 pm on Sunday.
“As it is now, there is no casualty, but only chairs and tables and the building were affected by the yet to be determined nature of the explosion.
“Already the Commissioner of Police, Mr Edward Egbuka, has directed our DC Investigations and the Bomb detective Squad to move to the scene to ascertain the very nature of the explosion.
“The police are on top of the situation as our officers and men drafted to the area have cordoned the place until an investigation reveals the real cause of the explosion.
“It’s very unfortunate that criminal elements are out to disrupt the prevailing peace we are enjoying in Kogi.
“We shall not rest until we bring to book such elements and let them see the need for maintenance of peace in our society,” Aya said.
The police spokesperson further called on the people of Okepadi and Kabba “to be calm and go about their normal duties without any fear as the police were on top of the situation.”
This is the second explosion in the same community in one month. The first which occurred on May 11 at a beer parlour around Lewu Junction in Kabba Town claimed three lives out of the 16 persons affected.
