Car Bomb Explosion Averted At Gombe Secondary School

According to the AFP, The Nigerian police on Monday uncovered a plot to bomb a secondary school in the city of Gombe by defusing a car laden with explosives that had been abandoned there.

Police bomb experts found 12 improvised explosives concealed in a car that was abandoned on the premises of the state-run Pilot secondary school, following a tip-off, Fwaje Attajiri told AFP.

“Our ordnance experts discovered 12 IEDs (improvised explosive devices) in the trunk of the car left in the vicinity of the school after we were alerted,” he said.

“The explosives had the capacity of causing maximum damage and would have caused huge casualty had they detonated in the school with a high student population,” he said.

Attajiri said an investigation had been launched to establish who was behind the foiled attack, refusing to say if Boko Haram Islamists can be blamed.
