Bomb Factory Reportedly Discovered In Edo State, One Person Killed In Explosion


A suspected bomb factory has been reportedly uncovered in Iddo, Okpella in Edo state, after one of the explosives exploded.

It was gathered that one of the suspected bomb makers was killed in the explosion, while another victim’s legs was reportedly chopped off in the blast. The building where the suspected bombs were manufactured is a three bedroom apartment which the villagers said was occupied by some men from Kogi State.

According to a source in the village, youths in the area mobilised and nabbed some occupants in the building, while one of the occupants, who reportedly escaped with a car loaded with prepared explosives, arms and ammunitions, abandoned the vehicle along a bush path and fled.


"We all came out when we heard the sound and informed the people that explosion killed somebody. When we got to the place one of the occupants we met immediately escaped in a vehicle.

So the youths gave him a hot chase shouting that he had killed somebody and he was subsequently arrested and taken to the Divisional Police Officer before his onward transfer to the area commander.  Wife of one of the suspects and her children were also taken into custody". President of Iddo Youth Movement, Mohammad Mohammad, said.

This is coming following the explosion that rocked Okpella, and the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, directed the commissioner of police and the Director of Department of State Services (DSS) in the state, to commence search for explosives and other weapons to disarm the militia group operating in the community.
