“No Bomb Explosion in Enugu State: Disregard Mischief Makers Misinformation’’.

“The command through its operatives of the Explosive Ordinance Department have commenced full analysis of the object picked near a bush close to a fence of a building located at Old Ngwo Road in Enugu today. It was gathered that through information received that an object suspected to be explosive ordinance was found as a man was clearing the bush near the said fence at about 9:30 a.m. today.
