Another Bomb Blast in Enugu State Capital | Rumors or Truth?

Another Bomb Blast in Enugu State Capital | Rumors or Truth? - Today's news has it that the Enugu State Police Command on Wednesday advised residents to ignore rumors of bomb explosion in the state and assured citizens to go about their normal businesses without fear at all.

SP Ebere Amaraizu, who is the Command’s spokesman, gave the advice in a statement on Wednesday morning in Enugu. Amarizu said Tuesday’s loud explosion in Enugu came from leftover of fireworks hidden in a cluster of firewood which was mistakenly used in cooking by a woman in the area.

The SP noted that on receiving reports of the alleged explosion from the community members, the command deployed operatives from its anti-bomb unit to the area.

Ebere said: “The command’s anti-bomb unit collaborated with other police operatives, led by the officer-in-charge of explosive ordinance department, to comb the community.

“The operatives discovered that it was the leftover of fire-work/knock-out in the firewood of a groundnut fryer that allegedly exploded when contacted with fire, which also produced some noise.

“A woman, Cecilia Ogenyi, of 21 Savage Crescent GRA, Enugu on May 9 escaped unhurt when suddenly the firewood used for frying her groundnut ignited fire due to some particles suspected to be leftovers of fireworks,’’ he said. Amaraizu said no one was injured during the incident and assured that investigations had since commenced into the matter.
