Another bomb planted by terrorists was yesterday discovered by residents of Shanono area of Rigasa community in Igabi local council of the Kaduna State.

The device was detected 24 hours after an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) concealed in a bucket was found in the community.

The anti-bomb squad of the state Police Command had deactivated the device discovered last Thursday and no casualty was recorded.

A resident, Tijjani Umar, told journalists that children in the community discovered the fresh object in a jerrycan covered with a black nylon.

Spokesman of the state Police Command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, confirmed the development, saying the anti-bomb squad team had been mobilised to the area.

“The area has been cordoned off so as to protect the people from getting hurt while our men are there to defuse the device,” he said.

He urged people of the area to be more vigilant as they go about their lawful duties.
