A loud blast was heard after an explosive device planted near the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), close to Garki Area 10 post office was detonated this morning by the Police. Daily Trust learnt that the explosive device was detonated by the Police Force Anti Bomb Squad around 10 O’clock this morning.
The device was purportedly discovered
and removed in a successful controlled
detonation by police without any serious
damage or casualty.
Attempts to reach the Federal Capital
Territory Police spokesperson Doris
England to confirm the report was
unsuccessful as her phone number was
not responding. However, FCT Police Commissioner Adewale Shinaba confirmed to Daily Trust that it was a controlled detonation of an explosive device found on Monday morning at the gate of the Area 10 Post Office.
