As Nigeria marks two years of Boko Haram attacks and societal unrest, the police in Kano State have released a statement saying that approximately six hundred and seventeen bombs have been defused in the state since the January 20, 2012 coordinated attacks in the state.

The stata police commissioner, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, speaking with journalists in Kano on Thursday stated that the policemen attached to the Explosives Ordnance Department defused six hundred improvised explosive devices rigged to go off in various areas of the state and seventeen high calibre bombs since the January terrorist attacks on security formations in the state.

In his speech, Idris commended both the officials of the Explosives Ordnance Department, who carried out their duties without restraint and the residents of Kano who were helpful in the supply of information on packages and items suspected to be explosives.

He said, “My men have been up and doing. They have lived up to expectation since the creation of the department.  So far, we have been able to uncover and defuse about 600 IEDs in small cans and over 17 drums of bombs, the type which suicide bombers used in the Jan 20 attacks in the state.

“During the period under review, the command’s anti-bomb squad had succeeded in evacuating and defusing explosive devices at Kano State College of Arts, Science and Remedial Studies, Kano, Kano University of Technology, Wudil, Gerawa Islamic Primary School and Ja’en Primary School.

“The bombs removed at College of Arts, Science and Remedial Studies, Kano and Kano State University of Technology were successfully defused without injury or damage.” (Punch)
