The police in Adamawa State have foiled a massive
bomb attack after they discovered 19 high-calibre
bombs in a bush near the state capital, Yola.
The discovery of the explosives was announced on
Friday, February 6, by the state Commissioner of
Police, Gabriel Adaji .
Adaji stated that the bombs, which weighed between
25kg and 30kg, were capable of destroying a ten-storey
building.
“They wanted to launch an attack in the state capital.
They wanted to bomb the main bridge linking the state
capital with the northern parts of the state. The IEDs
are almost 90 per cent completed and only need to be
connected to batteries to work, which may have been
the worst hit in the North and the nation at large if it
was not detected,” he added.
“One of the bombs is capable of bringing down a 10
storey building. They aimed to destroy Jimeta in the
state capital,” Adaji continued.
The commissioner stated that the bombs had been
discovered following a tip-off and that they have been
defused.
