The STF spokesman, Captain Ikedichi Iweha, said the bomb was successfully defused, urging the people of the state to remain vigilant.
Iweha stressed that: “Terrorists from the North-east are looking for areas to cause trouble, especially during the festive season. We urge people to remain vigilant and not take things for granted.”
