More Unexploded Ordinances (UXOs) planted during the Nigerian Civil War have been located and successfully recovered from Anambra, Imo and Delta States, the police said on Thursday.

The recent recoveries, which were executed by the Explosives Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Command of the Nigeria Police, were discovered mostly by builders while digging foundations, Police Commissioner Maikudi Shehu told reporters.

Shehu, who was in Lagos for the CP EOD’s third quarter conference with senior officers, base/unit commanders said, the UXOs were recovered and demobilised between May and this month.

He said: “The successes recorded over this period are in the area of UXOs which were left after the civil war.

“We recovered some of them in Imo, Anambra and Delta States within this period.

“They were discovered by builders while digging foundations and they quickly noticed the police.

“We had to move in quickly to see how we will secure those things and demobilise them without any injury to members of the public.

“We also ensured we did it quietly to avoid causing panic among the people. About 10 incidents were recorded and we successfully recovered, demobilised those UXOs.

“There is need for us to continue to upgrade and ensure that our technicians receive the best training to stay ontop of their game for the safety of the people.

“We advise people not to touch anything they find looking suspicious but should quickly alert the nearest police station so that EOD experts would be dispatched to inspect, recover and diffuse such objects if they are harmful.” (The Nation)
