The Commissioner of Police, Borno State, has disclosed that it discovered undetonated bombs, in the residence of the state Director of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), while 147 clusters of bombs were also recovered in Auno Village in Konduga Local Government Area of the state, according to reports by TheStreetJournal.
Speaking in Maiduguri, the State’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Clement Adoda, explained that the 147 clusters of bombs were discovered at a location of about 27 kilometres from the state capital, Maiduguri.
In response to the undetonated bomb found in the quarters of the NYSC Director, Adoda said that the state bomb disposal team recovered the unexploded ordinance, adding that it was believed that it was part of bombs launched during one of the Boko Haram attacks on Maiduguri in one of the Boys’ Quarters at the residence of the state Director of the National Youth Service Corps along Damboa Road, Maiduguri.
The State’s CP said: “The explosives were detonated safely without damages to lives and property. The discovery of this ordinance would not have been possible to achieve, if not for members of the public. They were quick in giving information to security agencies.
“We implore members of the public to always call on security agencies whenever items suspected to be Improved Explosive Devices were sighted in their domains. This is the only way to avert further wanton destruction to lives and property in the state.”
