Another Beer Palour Rocked By Explosion In Kabba Town

There was another explosion at a beer parlour in Kabba town, the headquarters of Kogi West Senatorial District in Kogi State on Sunday night.

Sunday night explosion is the second in the community within a one month.

The explosion was said to have occurred Sunday night at a bear parlour joint opposite a police station.

The first explosion which generated controversies as to whether it was a bomb or a gas cylinder, occurred on May 11 at a beer parlour around Lewu Junction in Kabba Town. That explosion claimed three lives out of the 16 persons affected.

Confirming Sunday explosion, the spokesman of the Kogi State Police Command, William Aya, said there was no casualty in the Sunday’s explosion, explaining that the explosion happened at one Omofemi Bar at Okepadi Quarters, Kabba, around 9.15 pm on Sunday.

Aya said: “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.

“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.”

The Kogi Police spokesman also 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.
