SP William Ovye-Aya, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lokoja that no one was hurt in the incident.
According to a police spokeswoman, the explosion occurred about 9.15 p.m. on Sunday at one Omofemi Bar in Kabba’s Okepadi Quarters.
“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 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 is on top of the situation as our officers and men drafted to the area have cordoned the place until 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 untill we bring to book such elements and let them see the need for maintenance of peace in our society,” he warned.
Ovye-Aya urged residents of Okepadi and Kabba to be calm and carry on with their daily activities without worry, noting that the police were on top of the issue.
The first explosion, which sparked debate over whether it was a bomb or a gas cylinder, happened on May 11 inside a beer parlour near Lewu Junction in Kabba Town, according to NAN.
Unlike the previous incident, where 16 people were killed, this time no one was killed and just property was damaged.
