3 Dead After Bomb Explodes in Kogi Monarch Palace

In Ebiraland, Kogi State, there is surmountable tension as the palace of the paramount traditional ruler and Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Dr. Ado Ibrahim was rocked by a bomb blast this morning, December 29.

According to an eyewitness report, a car with explosives was driven into the palace, exploding a few minutes after, ripping through the palace in the process.

Sources have told Sahara Reporters that at least, three people have been confirmed dead in the blast, while several others were left injured.

At the time of this report, the driver’s identity is yet to be ascertained.

Also, the circumstances surrounding the bomb blast aren’t ascertained although sources have claimed that it might be connected with the monarch’s refusal to accept the new palace allegedly built for him by Governor Yahaya Bello.

The king was supposed to have moved to the place before Buhari planned would visit the state but he did not move in. Hence, the speculation that the explosion could have intentionally been triggered in his palace to coerce him to move into the new palace built by Governor Yahaya Bello.
