Kano - The Police Anti Bomb squad in Kano on Wednesday defused four improvised explosive devices (IEDs) discovered by residents behind a popular bakery located on Rijiyar Zaki Quarters of the metropolis.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the latest discovery comes barely 24 hours after a similar discovery was made at Federal College of Education, Kano State.
Eyewitness told NAN in Kano that the explosives were discovered near the bakery by some residents of the area.
They said that the items were discovered in the early hours of Wednesday.
"The anti-bomb disposal unit was quickly alerted and they promptly deployed their personnel to the scene," a resident, who wishes to be anonymous told NAN.
When contacted, the Command’s Public Relation Officer, Mr Rilwanu Dutse, A Deputy Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident.
He, however, said that there was no fresh bomb uncovered in the area.
"It was left over of IEDs used by the extremist in a failed attack on our patrol vehicle last Sunday," he said.
According to him, the deployment of anti- bomb squad to the scene on Wednesday was principally to defuse the IEDs.
The PPRO called on members of the public to go about their normal activities as security operatives were on top of the situation.
