A staff of the Delta State-owned College of Education, Agbor, raised alarm over a suspicious vehicle parked at the administrative block, assuming the car was loaded with an explosive device.
According to an eyewitness, the alarm was raised immediately, following the resumption of the day’s work, staff members trooped out of their offices and scampered for safety.
However, it was gathered that a top management staff of the institution has called the attention of the police who came to evacuate the car, a Toyota Carina II (registration number VB 778 KJA), to the station before normalcy returned later in the day.
The car was parked at the restricted area of the administrative block which aroused the curiosity of the whistle blower who probed into its content and raised the alarm.
The owner of the car was yet to be identified as at press time.
A source at the Agbor Divisional Police Station confirmed the incident, saying investigation has commenced.
It’s worth noticing that the incident which jolted both staff and students came just a day after the Academic Staff Union of the institution suspended its 4-months strike.
It would be recalled that barely a month ago, gunmen suspected to be an assassin opened fire in Agbor over alleged defacing of a politician’s billboard, as preparations towards the 2015 general elections continue to gather momentum.
It could not be ascertained if last Friday’s bomb scare was related to the bitter politics that has become the lot of many across the state.
