The state Commissioner for Police, Edward Egbuka, confirmed the explosion.
“Yes, what happened was that we were informed of a package that looked like a bomb was left on the premises and I immediately deployed the bomb disposal unit there to assess the object”, he said.
“The object was immediately blown up. The explosion you heard was the handwork of our bomb disposing unit brought about by their efforts to blow up the object.”
A further investigation has also commenced to ascertain what the object was.
