Police recover bomb specimen

By Emma Nnadozie, Crime Editor
The Commissioner of Police in-charge of Explosive Ordinance Disposal, EOD, Unit of the Nigeria Police Force, Mr. Chris Olakpe, yesterday, said they have recovered little specimen of evidential value which will aid investigations into the bomb blast that disrupted the  two-day National Post- Amnesty Dialogue, an initiative of Vanguard Media Limited in Warri, Delta State.

Speaking with Vanguard in Lagos, few hours after the blast, the police boss said,“My men were at the scene of the blast at the speed of light. We were able to cordon-off the scene. We recovered little specimen of evidential value which we are working on.  We are sure that at the end of our investigations, by the grace of God, there will be a great proof.”

It will be recalled that Olakpe last week announced that 20 officers and men of the unit will be undergoing a special training on bomb detection, neutralisation and post-blast analysis to be sponsored by the Police Attache to the Embassy of France. He added that dedicated mobile phones have been procured for distribution to all the commands of the unit.
