A blast that occurred in Yola on Thursday was caused by a grenade belonging to the military, police have confirmed.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police in the State, Usman Audu, said, “The military grenade was picked from dustbin by some young boys who I believed were playing with it.
“In the process, one of them pulled the trigger and it started smoking. They threw it away but the blast injured one of the boys slightly on his left foot.
“The two boys are right now with us. The blast is not Boko Haram attack as being speculated,’’ Audu said.
