A suspected suicide bomber on Tuesday blew himself up in the Afikpo local government area of Ebonyi state.
Source told The Nation that the yet-to-be-identified man was attempting to enter Amaizu/Amangballa Primary School before he was stopped by the school security.
“He made an attempt at entering Amaizu/ Amangballa Primary School but was turned back by the school security since he couldn’t justify his reason for visiting. He immediately started running inside a nearby bush before a big bang was heard”
Also, another source told Leadership the suspect was seen wandering within the area, adding that “He first came into a beer parlor and when the people inquired who he was, he left”.
The Ebonyi state commissioner for internal security, Stanley Okoro confirmed the incident. He, however, stated that he was yet to get details of the incident.
