WHAT!? 17,000 Live Bombs Found In A House In Imo State

The Nigerian Army has deployed soldiers to take over security of the premises housing 17,000 live bombs in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Soldiers from 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, were said to have taken over the premises days back.

A team of bomb experts from 34 Artillery Brigade have been dispatched to site where the explosives are being stockpiled at No. 109, Achike Udenka Avenue in new Owerri, a densely populated area, to get a first hand information of the situation on the explosives, with a view to reporting to the authorities on the next line of action.

This is even as Professor Yakubu has raised fresh alarm over the presence of another 44,000, bombs in some uncleared locations across the southeastern part of the country, saying some of these explosives are located in schools, churches, markets and other public places.

Biafran Secret Service Fear 
The explosive expert who expressed delight over the concern of the army authorities, especially with the security challenges in the country and the establishment of a Biafran Secret Service recently, said “the soldiers would guard the place until we are ready to destroy the bombs.”

Beside the military authorities, Prof. Yakubu, said he had also been contacted by officials from the Department of State Security Services (DSS), who he said have been providing security for the premises after he contacted them over the issue during the 2015 general elections.

Security on the premises 
When The Sun made contacts over the security of the premises by soldiers, Public Relations Officer in charge of 34 Artillery Brigade, Captain Haruna Tagwai, said “the army has already provided security on the premises, but the property belongs to the Ministry of Defence.”

“If you want more fact about it, you can contact the press’s secretary in the Ministry of Defence.”
