An explosive device that was thrown from a moving car destroyed six vehicles at a popular night club, Krystal lounge at Wuse II, Abuja late Friday night.
The blast which occurred around 11:30pm, also shattered the glass windows of nearby buildings and threw residents into panic.
No casualty was recorded and the club which was believed to have been the target was not affected by the blast.
The Federal Capital Territory Commissioner of Police, Adenrele Shinaba, told journalists at the scene that the device was thrown from a vehicle in motion.
He added that no arrest had been made.
The CP did not say the type of explosive used. “I am not a bomb expert,’’ he retorted.
He, however, said men of the Explosive Ordnance Department of the police had commenced investigation into the matter and that they would reveal the type of explosives used and the motive of those behind the explosion.
