An explosion has occurred at WTC School 1, polling unit at about 7:38 a.m. which left voters and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) scampering for safety.

Two others were detonated at about 8.56 a.m. at the same premises by the operatives of the Anti-Bomb Squad of the Enugu Police command.

According to an eyewitness, the bombs were laden in a Honda car which was parked beside the entrance gate of the school.

As at the time of filing this report, accreditation had not started at the centre and most centres in the state.

Newly posted Commissioner for Police, Dan Bature, confirmed the incident at the scene of the incident saying: “Three bombs were found in a Honda Accord car with registration. Number KUJ 971 ABJ.

“One of the bombs exploded while we have just successfully detonated two. It was an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). We do not know who planted it.

“We are working assiduously to unravel the identity of the suspects. The suspects abandoned the car at the entrance gate. We are working to get the area safe.”
