An explosion has damaged a bar in Kabba, a town in Kogi State that is 85km from the capital city, Lokoja.

The Kogi State Police Command the blast but said no life was lost.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, William Ovye-Aya said it happened at Omofemi Bar at Okepadi Quarters around 9.15 pm Sunday.

“As it is now, there is no casualty, but only chairs and tables, and the building is 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,” he said.

The PPRO called on the people of Kabba to be calm and go about their normal duties without fear.

Sunday’s blast was the second in the town this month.

An explosion rocked a beer parlour around Lewu Junction on 11 May, leaving residents wondering whether it was a bomb or gas cylinder.

16 persons were affected in the first explosion.
