Newslensng Nigeria reports that the Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer, William Ovye Aya, confirmed the incident.
According to him, the command had commenced an investigation to unravel the cause of the attack.
Meanwhile, this said attack on Kogi LG Offices is coming after the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), had claimed responsibility for a car bomb explosion that killed about four people and injured several others in the Okene Local Government Area of Kogi State in January.

The Kogi State Government has also not yet reacted to the development, as efforts made by our reporter to get their side of the story proved abortive.
Also, neither the state nor the affected local government have made any official statement either.
