The State Commissioner of Police, Jinjiri Abubakar, who confirmed the incident, said that the explosive was planted around 4 a.m. and was found around 6 a.m.
“An IED concealed in a television set was found this morning after it was planted around 4 a.m. and based on intelligence report we got to know of it.
“Our men arrived there around 6 a.m. and they successfully detonated it and there was no casualty recorded,” Mr. Abubakar said.
The commissioner said that residents of the area got to know about it after the police had cordoned off the area and the noise that followed the detonation attracted some residents. The noise of the explosive attracted residents of the area who ran out of their houses.
He appealed to residents of the city to volunteer information to the police for prompt action to tackle the insecurity challenges in the state.
