Police Unravel Clue Behind Foiled Bomb Attack On Winners Chapel Owerri

The police commissioner in Imo state, Abdulmajid Ali has said the police has found a clue that would help unravel the circumstances leading to the discovery of two deadly explosives at the Living Faith Church, a.k.a. Winners Chapel, two weeks ago.

Abdulmajid disclosed this yesterday in Owerri while speaking to newsmen, National Mirror reports.

According to him, the clue which would unravel the circumstances behind the bombs has been kept close to his chest and is being investigated.

“We are working on it and it will be made known to you very soon,” he said.

Six people had been arrested on the day of the incident.

Speaking on how they were nabbed, he said, they first arrested one of them, a Ugandan, who led the police to the hotel where the others were arrested.

He explained that they were foreigners who were in the state for an economic programme.

It would be recalled that two deadly improvised explosive devices (IEDs) had been discovered by the Imo state police at the Living Faith church but they were detonated by the anti-bomb squad deployed to the church thereby averting an explosion that would have killed many.

The bombs were said to have the capacity to demolish within 500 metres range and would have been a disaster had they exploded, as the church where they were planted is located in a densely populated area of the state.
