Lagos, Nigeria (PANA) - Sunday's night's explosion in Nigeria's central city of Jos was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) placed on a motorcycle by unknown persons, the police said Monday.
No one was killed in the blast, which occurred in the Tundun Wada area of the Plateau state capital.
But state police command spokesman Samuel Dabai said one person sustained a minor injury and was rushed to the Plateau Specialist Hospital.
The Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Bitrus Matawale, confirmed Mr. Dabai's statement, saying only one person was brought to the hospital for treatment.
''The person that was brought to the hospital sustained only minor injury and he was treated and discharged that evening of yesterday (Sunday),'' he told journalists.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack and no arrest has been made in connection with it, the police said.
The blast occurred on the same day that an explosion rocked the northern city of Kaduna, leaving dozens dead and many more injured.
The Islamic sect Boko Haram had claimed responsibility for previous attacks in both cities.
