The commission and the Kogi State command of the Nigerian Police Force are, however, yet to react to the incident, although it was learnt that detectives had been deployed to the scene.

It could be recalled that the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, had claimed responsibility for several attacks in the state recently.
