Police Warns about more Explosions During APC, PDP Rallies


The Nigeria Police Force Headquarters has received intelligence reports that there are plots to bomb more political rallies ahead of the re-scheduled general elections, the Punch reports.

After recent explosions in Rivers and Gombe states, police investigations showed that it had become easier for people to make bombs through the Internet.

According to the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, the ease with which people now have access to information on how to make violent attacks involving the use of explosives to disrupt political gatherings should be expected to increase.

“We have the ISIS and al Qaeda who are taking on the world with their terrorist activities. Today, these groups have equipped interested people on how to make bombs through the Internet. So, we expect that more people will take advantage of that to wreak havoc at campaign rallies,” the police spokesman said.

He urged political parties, candidates and their supporters to be more vigilant when organising and attending any large political gathering.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, Mr. Gbolahan Moronfolu, said that the police was well-equipped to handle any situation when called upon.

A security expert, Simon Udie, in his turn, also said that the use of explosive devices would continue to increase as long as the two major political parties, the APC and the PDP, keep making inflammatory remarks. Details on the Punch.
