Bassey stated that an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was exploded by "hoodlums who were unable to penetrate the heavily fortified PDP Secretariat on November 24".

He said, "they threw an explosive device from behind the premises into the building. The explosion only shattered some louvres on the ground floor. No life was lost nor anybody sustain injury. The Police anti-bomb Squad has cordoned off the area.

But eye-witnesses told journalists that the explosion rocked several buildings in the vicinity of the party secretariat on Murtala Mohammed High Way, Calabar.

Heavy presence of armed policemen and soldiers was noticed at the scene of the incident Monday.

A resident of one of the houses close to the PDP secretariat where the incident occurred, said that his house rocked when the explosion occurred.
