There is palpable tension in Ebiraland in Kogi State as the palace of the paramount traditional ruler and Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Dr. Ado Ibrahim was rocked by a bomb blast on Thursday morning.
An eyewitness told Akelicious that a car with explosives was driven into the palace, exploding some minutes after and ripping through the palace.
Sources told Our Correspondent, that three people were killed by the blast, with some others injured.
According to an eyewitness, “a car with explosives was driven into the palace this morning, and shortly after, the car exploded.”
The source said the identity of the driver could not yet be ascertained
The king was supposed to have moved to the place before today that Buhari would visit the state but he did not move in. So people are speculating that the explosion could have deliberately been triggered in his palace to force him to move to the new palace built by Governor Yahaya Bello.”
