An improvised explosives device (IED) planted along Shanono area of Rigasa community in Igabi Local Government Area has been detonated by Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command.
It was gathered that the device was concealed inside a bucket and dumped near a stream by unknown persons suspected to be terrorists around 6:30am on Thursday, March 31.
A resident of the area, Tijjani Har’una Shehu, told Daily Trust that the bucket was sealed with cellotape which made the people nearby suspicious.
According to him, there were wires connected into the sealed bucket.
The loud bang following the controlled explosion caused panic among residents who weren’t aware of the discovery and they took to Facebook to express their fear.
Spokesperson of the command, ASP Jalige Mohammed, confirmed the discovery but did not give further details.
