An item which is suspected to be an explosive device has been discovered at the Union Primary School, Afaraukwu in Umuahia North LGA in Abia state.

Chief John Okiyi Kalu, the state Commissioner for Information, disclosed this in a statement issued today April 8. Kalu said the state government is currently working with security agencies in the state to find out the source and nature of which the suspected explosive devices came from.

The statement reads

“Abia State Government is currently working with relevant security agencies in the state to unravel the source and nature of the suspected explosive devices found at Union Primary School, Afaraukwu in Umuahia North LGA.

While initial examination of the devices show evidence of corrosion leading to suspicion of the materials being relics of the civil war era, we are awaiting a definite official report from the EOD squad of the Nigeria Police who are currently investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, necessary measures have been taken to protect the pupils and staff of the school with security sweeps ongoing while the school is temporarily closed.

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has directed security agencies to embark on proactive checks in other vulnerable locations out of abundance of caution.

While we are grateful to God that there is no harm to life or property, we urge citizens and residents to continue to maintain vigilance and report suspicious situations to security agents.”
