Bomb Scare At INEC Office In Awka Capital Ahead of Anambra Guber

There were rumours of bomb scare at the Anambra headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, following alleged discovery of a substance which looked like an improvised explosive device (IED).

A source who pleaded not to be named said that the device was detected by men of the anti-bomb squad of the Nigeria Police Force who combed the entire compound very early on Monday morning. According to the source, “It was early this morning that I was trying to use that road, when police condoned it off. We were told that they found a device that looked like a bomb and had to stop everyone to so that they can diffuse the device.

Consequently, security has been beefed up at the premises. Hordes of security operatives were seen, while visitors were subjected to full identification before entry. The resident electoral commissioner REC, Dr Nkwachukwu Orji, in his reaction said no bomb was detected. He, however, admitted that a substance was picked outside the compound and could have been dropped by anyone. Orji added that it was the duty of the police to verify the object.

State police public relations officer, Princess Nkeiruka Nwode, said she was not aware of the discovery. She recalled that she stayed late into the night at INEC and was not privy to such. Asked to comment on influx of bomb disposal unit experts at the INEC office, Nwode said it was part of preparations for the Saturday governorship election.
