Bomb scare causes pandemonium in Abuja

The Wuse Zone 5 area of the FCT was thrown into pandemonium, at midday on Friday as a bomb scare forced the evacuation of offices and buildings in the commercial area of the nation’s capital.

A recent bomb scare at the NNPC headquarters had people run out of the towers.

The scare was created via unconfirmed rumour that an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) had been planted in a sack at a spot between Top View Hotel and the headquarters of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

People hurriedly evacuated their offices and fled the area.

Wuse zone 5 is also home to the national headquarters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Federal Inland Revenue Service(FIRS).

The resultant evacuation led to a gridlock on Algiers street and movement was restricted to one lane of dual carriage road.

The area was later cordoned off by operatives of the Special Anti-Bomb Squad, who searched and found the supposed bomb to detonate.

It was however discovered to be a sack containing rags dumped by an unknown person.

The area has been declared safe and traffic is beginning to flow again.

Abuja has been hit by a number of bomb scares as well as coordinated bomb attacks since the October 1, 2010 bomb blast.

      I AGREE WITH YOU 100%, THE SEPARATION INTO REGIONS MAY EVEN OCCUR BEFORE THE 2015 FORETOLD. OUR SYSTEM OF DEMOCRAZY IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO RUN BY CORRUPT LEADERS. CBN GOVERNOR ONCE ALLEGED THAT ABOUT 50% OF THE BURGET IS EXPENDED ON OUR LEGISLATURE FROM LOCAL GOVERNMENT COUNCILORS, CHAIRMEN AND RETINUE OF AIDES TO GOVERNORS TO REPS TO SENATORS TO MINISTERS AND THE PRESI DENCY.
      THERE IS ALLOCATION FOR POWER GENERATING SETS FOR ASO ROCK, WHILE FOREIGNERS IMPORT HUNDREDS OF CONTAINER LOAD OF GENERATORS INTO NIGERIA EVERY MONTH.
      IT IS SAD! I PRAY THAT GOD WILL INTERVENE BEFORE LONG. AMEN
