Explosion rocks Enugu polling unit



There was fear and pandemonium, at the WTC School 1, polling unit in Enugu state, as an explosive device inside a car parked in the premises went off, sending INEC officials and voters running for safety.

Operatives of the Police Anti-Bomb Squad later detonated two other devices at the same premises.

Eyewitness say the car-bomb was parked beside the entrance gate of the school.

Newly posted Commissioner for Police, Dan Bature confirmed the incident at the scene of the incident saying, “three bombs were found in a Honda Accord car with registration. Number KUJ 971 ABJ.

“One of the bombs exploded while we have just successfully detonated two. It was an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). We do not know who planted it.

“We are working assiduously to unravel the identity of the suspects. The suspects abandoned the car at the entrance gate. We are working to get the area safe.”
