The Explosive Ordinance Department (EOD) of the Nigeria Police has discovered and detonated some bombs abandoned after the 1967 civil war in three states.
The explosives were discovered in Imo, Delta and Anambra States, by construction workers building in the areas.
Commissioner of Police in charge of EOD, CP Maikudi Shehu, during his quarterly conference with senior officers and EOD base/unit commanders at his office in Ikeja, Lagos, said: “Part of our successes after the general elections was the recovery and subsequent detonation of explosives left during the civil war in three states of Anambra, Delta and Imo.
The explosives were detonated without panic. The quantity of the explosives was many and would have caused lots of damages if not for the timely intervention of our department.
