The Oyo state police have foiled a bomb attack by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in Ibadan.
The Commander of Explosives Ordinance Disposal of the Nigerian Police in Oyo State, Oluseun Awodele, has said that they have uncovered a number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Ibadan during a search at a public function (area not mentioned).
The explosives contained detonator cords, high dynamite batteries, detonators with ammonium nitrate, underlining that if the explosives were well combined and constructed, they would form highly explosive IEDs.
The explosives are similar to that used by terrorist group, Boko Haram, but the police are yet to reveal if the incident is connected to a threat of a terrorist attack by the dreaded sect.
The police cautioned members of the public to be more security conscious and beware of materials left carelessly in public places to avert any form of disaster.
