The Nigeria Police in Enugu State have confirmed the Sunday attack on the country home of the Ohaneze National President in Ukehe.
Ebere Amaraizu, spokesman for the Enugu State police command, who confirmed the incident to newsreportersng.com said investigations revealed the explosive device was thrown into the house through the gate by yet to be identified person(s).
According to him, the device which triggered the explosion could not have been planted inside because the house is “fortified”.
He added that the state police command had commenced investigations to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident, adding that the state commissioner of police is present at the scene of the incident.
“Yes, there was explosion of a minor category. What we are trying to do here is to find out how it occurred,” Amaraizu said.
“Indications from our preliminary inquiry shows it was not planted because the place is fortified. Maybe the person threw in the object from the gate.
