60 explosives discovered in Gombe - Planned Easter Attack

What could have led to one of the bloodiest Easter celebrations in recent times in Gombe State was averted, yesterday, as operatives of the State Security Service(SSS)  discovered 60 Improvised Explosive Devices planted in different locations at the British Cotton Ginnery Area (BCGA) of the metropolis.

They were programmed to explode yesterday, the eve of Easter Friday.
Gombe State Director of SSS,  Mr Bitrus Asha, disclosed at a briefing  that four suspects were arrested over the intended attack following a tip-off while one suspect escaped.

Asha explained that the suspects, who were paraded before newsmen were arrested between 12 noon and 1.30 P.M.

He said: “As you can see, there are a lot of explosives, numbering about 60 prepared in tins, ready for detonation. So we are lucky that the tins were recovered and you are even advised not to go near the items with your handsets. Very soon, the items will be defused. We are lucky that we have made the recovery.”
