Abia State Shuts Down School After ‘Explosive Devices’ Were Found In Classrooms

According to reports, some students on Thursday, April 8, found the device in a classroom and alerted the school authorities. The school authorities were said to have alerted the police leading to the evacuation of the school premises. John Kalu, the Abia commissioner of information, said the explosive devices may be relics of the civil war era, owing to “evidence of corrosion.”

“Abia State Government is currently working with relevant security agencies in the state to unravel the source and nature of the suspected explosive devices found at Union Primary School, Afaraukwu in Umuahia North LGA. While initial examination of the devices shows evidence of corrosion leading to suspicion of the materials being relics of the civil war era, we are awaiting a definite official report from the EOD squad of the Nigeria Police who are currently investigating the incident.  Meanwhile, necessary measures have been taken to protect the pupils and staff of the school with security sweeps ongoing while the school is temporarily closed.
