Police detect and remove bomb, as Governor Chime flags off campaign in Enugu

SULLIVAN CHIME, Enugu State Governor

On 18 February, men of the Anti-Bomb Squad of the Enugu State Police Command detected and removed a bomb planted by unknown persons at the venue where Governor Sullivan Chime was to flag off his electoral campaign in Enugu, just a few hours before the commencement of the event.

The State Police Commissioner, Mr. Job Danazumi Doma, told reporters after the event held at Okpara Square, Enugu, that the“locally-made bomb” which was planted under the VIP pavilion where the governor and other dignitaries normally sit, was intended to cause havoc during the rally.

He explained that once the bomb was detected by men of the Anti-Bomb Squad, it was immediately neutralized and evacuated to the Police Headquarters, while the entire venue was properly swept with detectors before the event started. The rally went ahead and was completed without any security breach.
