Letter Bomb Averted in Niger State
Total Filling Station by an unidentified person was intercepted and detonated by the men of the Nigerian Police in Minna, the capital
It was revealed that the parcel had the logo of one of the new generation bank (name. Withheld) and was tactically dropped at the workshop of a welder who goes by the name Emmanuel Emogon.
Emogon’s workshop is said to be situated closed to the busy Abdulsalami Motor Park in Tunga area of Minna.
Sources further revealed that Mr. Emogon was then directed by the unknown men to kindly deliver the letter to Mrs. Udeh since they were tired of waiting and then contacted Mrs. Justina on phone to collect her letter from the welder .
She was not told either where the letter was coming from or its contents. It was also disclosed that once she got the call, she
directed one of her staff, Nnamdi Osiogu, to go and receive the letter on her behalf. However, she began to doubt the source of the
letter when it got to her.
Her suspicion started when the letter bore the logo of a bank she had never had an account with. She then instructed her staff to return
the letter to the bank where all the departments in the bank denied sending out such letter.
Mrs. Udeh who could not open the parcel to know its content decided to see the police with the letter where it was discovered to be bomb percel and was detonated hurriedly by the bomb experts.
The Police Command Spokeperson, ASP Richard Oguche confirmed that the letter was opened, and a heavy sound was produced, yet no one was hurt at the process. According to him, investigation was already on to identify those behind the letter bomb.
