Bomb Explodes At Crystal Lounge, No Casualties – Agency
A bomb has exploded outside a popular nightclub frequented by foreigners and wealthy Nigerians in the capital Abuja late on Friday but no one was injured, an emergency agency said.
The blast shattered windows in nearby buildings and damaged six luxury vehicles, said an emailed statement from National Emergency Management Agency spokesman Yushau Shuaib, sent on Saturday.
Authorities suspected the bomb was planted on a tree outside the Kryxtal Lounge club, the statement added.
Islamist sect Boko Haram has said that it will carry out deadly attack in the capital before the end of June.
The Group which is loosely modeled on the Afghan Taliban, wants to carve out an Islamic state in northern Nigeria and is seen as the country’s biggest security threat.
