Solomon-Arase1The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has placed State Commissioners of Police on red alert following the blast that occurred at a Police Divisional Headquarters in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
Bombs retrieved from Boko Haram were said to have exploded accidentally at the Police Anti-bomb Squad Office in Jimeta, Yola.
The blast left four policemen dead with scores of others injured and currently receiving treatment in the hospital.
Mr. Arase, who commiserated with families of the victims, directed the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Department of Operations, DIG Sontoye Wakama, to visit the scene of the blast.
A statement issued in Abuja on Friday by the Force Spokesperson, Olabisi Kolawole, said DIG Wakama is expected to condole with the families of the deceased and to ensure that those that sustained injuries from the explosion receive prompt medical attention.
According to the statement; “The Nigeria Police Force High Command has directed adequate security surveillance on places where Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) recovered and kept to ensure such incident does not occur in anywhere across the country.
“The IGP has also directed all Commands’ Commissioners of Police to deploy Anti-Bomb Squad personnel of their respective State Commands to inspect all explosive elements kept in their armories to ensure they are safe, to forestall re-occurrence of the unfortunate incident”.
Kolawole, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, quoted the police boss as calling for calm and urging members of the public to go about their normal businesses without fear as all hands are on deck to ensure their safety at all times.
