The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Sunday said there was no bomb explosion on Saturday night in Karu, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory as being rumoured.

Abuja Operations Coordinator of NEMA, Mr Ishaya Chonoko, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

He said that the blast that was heard in the area came from a quarry company which carried out its activity without the permission of the police.

"I live in Karu, there was nothing like bomb blast in Karu; it was a quarry company that carried out that balst," he said.

Similarly, the police command Abuja also debunked the news of the bomb explosion in the area.

The command’s Spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, told NAN that personnel of the command had gone round the area and found nothing like bomb explosion.
