Security operatives on Monday uncovered a bomb factory in an uncompleted building along Kano Road, Kabba, Kogi State.
The Unit Commander of the Anti Bomb Squad, Kogi State, Mr. Cletus Nzeji, while conducting journalists round the building on Monday, said their investigations revealed that the owner of the uncompleted building normally visited the place late at night.
He stated that security operatives placed the building under surveillance for three days when they got intelligence information about suspicious activities in the uncompleted building that might undermine public peace and threaten security of lives and property.
He said, “We finally stormed the building around 2am on Monday.”
He added that the security team recovered five canisters that were ready for use, one military cap, large quantity of wire and ropes and many jackets.
Nzeji added that the team also recovered from the bomb factory a bank teller showing N36,000 deposited in one of the banks in Okene and a locally made bomb ready for use.
Also substances suspected to be explosives at various stages of production were recovered from the scene.
A security source said if production of those unfinished explosives had been completed, the masterminds would have wreaked untold havoc on the people.
