Election 2015: Bomb Blast in Enugu State

Related

A bomb went off at the WTC primary and secondary school premises. There are five polling booths in the WTC complex and according to a female witness, who lives very close to the premises, the first bomb went off with a deafening blast at 7.38am.

The noise attracted policemen and residents around the area to the sight of the blast including early voters. But the regular policemen, worried that there could be more bombs, warned people off while they waited for the arrival of the police bomb squad.

With the arrival of the Bomb Squad, it was learnt that the first bomb was planted in a Honda saloon car. The Commissioner of Police who was drafted in the area for the election exercise, Dan Bature was at the scene as well.

As at the time of filing this report, the Bomb Squad had detonated three other bombs and were still trying to detonate others.

Addressing journalists, Bature confirmed that a Honda Accord car with registration number KUJ 971 LB was abandoned in the WTC “and our men were alerted. The Bomb Disposal Department discovered some well-placed Improvised Explosive Devises (IED).

Bature said, “we don’t know their motives or who they are. No lives were lost. We are here in full strength and we are on top of the situation. All is well and we will ensure those who are here to vote will vote.”

        • Gabriel

          Buhari doesn’t have the power to death and life, he doesn’t even have a clue who you or me is? Except you want to tell me you have reasons to run and hide or avoid being killed. Why should I be sentimenta? He is not my father, not my family member, I don’t know the man but all I say is bearing who ever wins this election Nigeria should remain in peace, it’s four years not forever, Jonathan can’t contest after this term Buhari can’t contest because of age, trust me whoever wins

        Buhari should forget 2015 try 2019

      • Ajayi Dare

        Mr Gabriel I love your courage and your response to issues here but one thing I want to say is that amidst our desires for who we want as the president we should also submit all to the one who sees the hearts of men and the one who knows who is truely who and who is best for this nation…God almighty

  • Ralf

    Biafrans!!…He who is surrounded by enemies, must protect himself at all times”..This is beyond election thuggery n act of violence…Just b vigilant. ..

    • Gabriel

      I am most certain someone from amongst you drove that vehicle there not a stranger or a hausa fulani, remove your log first.

    • Gabriel

      Biafrans in Nigeria, buzu, ezeoku, idada, bakoye, eleran, atutu boyoyo. The trouble you are expecting will start in your house, why can’t you stay indifferent and positive for once. Kill all your bias, you open your mouth to call Biafrans where we’re you when your kind threw Nigeria into civil war. Dundee United.

  • Juungle Man

    No politician is worth dying for.

    • Gabriel

      God bless you my brother, some Nigerian youths are just blind. Whoever is the president cannot change a person’s mind or mentality. A mentally retarded man knows as long as he has peace there is hope

  • Remi

    Hausa-Fulanis are causing problems everywhere! Imagine if they shld take over govt! God forbid!

    • Gabriel

      Remi vote first, winning always is nobody’s birth right

    • Gabriel

      praise God it is not your decision to give us a president it is every Nigerian and you are as insignificant and brief as your thoughts, can you see beyond your nose? You are just one in over 170million, shut up and let God’s will be done.

  • So Buhari is throwing these bombs to scare the Igbos from voting Jonathan. Buhari! Buhari!! Buhari!!! How many times did I call you? Do not bite more than you can chew. Biafrans are watching.

    • Gabriel

      You are a very foolish person for pointing accusing fingers, vote who ever you want to vote who ever you want to vote…. Let us have peace…. Foolish violence inciting person…. Let your conscience judge you.

      • Bright smith

        some people are illiterate physical and spiritual hahahaha go back to school angel GAB

        • Gabriel

          Bright Smith, atleast I spelt your name right, and the last time I checked am not writing Chinese but English, stop preaching hate I am not a hausa,igbo or yoruba man, neither do I bare two borrowed names like you. Unlike you I bare Adache Eneojo Gabriel, I am a Nigerian youth, I say again absent of any sentiments let the best man win, being a Christian is beyond your unguided utterances. Long live the federal republic of Nigeria.

          • It is a pity that you call yourself a Nigerian. Aren’t you ashamed of saying that? A contraption concocted by the British to keep Biafrans captive. Named by a harlot; Flora Shaw… Lugard’s girlfriend, and after a river. Which other country is named like that?

            What is the true meaning of Nigeria? Even after the forced union expired (1914 – 2014), you still do not care to ask questions, or at least renew the union, instead you go about keeping the contraption “one” for the slave masters; the British and accomplices.

            Biafra means Bia(come) Fara(join), very reasonable, isn’t it?

        • Gabriel

          I expect your educated man to understand that you are insignificant as far as electoral issues are concerned. Thanks for the insults, wise one……

          • Bright smith

            the star that directed the three wisest men in the bible is coming from the east..that MEANS THE IGBO`s IS THE WISEST TRIDE IN WORLD…we need need our freedom cus we are KINGS.

          • Wisdom

            You are there my dear, it should get into their blocked head/brain, THE IGBOs’ FIRST. If not the Igbos’, Nigeria would have been Rubbish.

          • Gabriel

            Engage your wisdom in better things nobody is asking you to stay by force but one word to you right now, wisdom is profitable to direct, there is a name for what you are saying and writing, it’s treason as long as you are still under the authority of Nigeria

      • Wisdom

        You are very stupid by calling someone foolish cos you know dats you second name. You know you are useless and dat your vote is also useless just stay in your house and sleep, allow that dying criminal to be ur president. Schizophrenic being!

        • Gabriel

          So unfortunate your name is the direct opposite, I am not asking you not to vote but I am a supporter of no violence baring the outcome of the election, have you seen what post election violence has caused in Sierra Leone, or Liberia if you have my brother.

    • peter

      Your level of ignorance is unbelievable,am sure buhari is also masterminding all terrorist actions round the world.please look beyond your ethnic bias.

      • obby girl

        Hausa/fulani or whoever you are cannot interrupt this credible election.

    • Gabriel

      Biafrans in Nigeria, buzu, ezeoku, idada, bakoye, eleran, atutu boyoyo. The trouble you are expecting will start in your house, why can’t you stay indifferent and positive for once. Kill all your bias, you open your mouth to call Biafrans where we’re you when your kind threw Nigeria into civil war. Dundee United. Change your thought process and listen to wisdom, you don’t build by breaking.

    • The truth is ugly

      My sister I am not even voting because none of them deserve to be voted for, but I understand one thing better is the end of a matter than the beginning there of, it is God that wills to have and to do. Let his will be done in Nigeria. Are we not tired of manipulations by the ruling class? Let the will of God prevail.

      • empress

    • Gabriel

      My brother where in your bible did Jesus ask you to go to war on his behalf? When Peter cut off the ear, did Jesus clap for him? No, he picked up the ear and replaced it. Shame on you to insult a man who is a priest, go and become a Christian before you write rubbish. Even in death Jesus endured the cross, mortal man!

      • Charleso

        2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and
        wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with
        darkness?. You can GEJ is not a Christian but he has align himself with us. Jesus to his disciple about the people healing with His name Mark 9:40 ‘for whoever is not against us is for us.’ Please we are not serving the same God.

      • empress

        dnt even bother responding to that uneducated arrogant rubbish called a man.a dustbin should b his abode.Jesus i have never seen such first class level of stupidity.the boy thinks he knows all when he knows nothing.

    • Ade

      Why you guys keep talking about Jesus and bible. Nigerians are so ignorant. Oyinbo has made us loose our culture by bringing outside religion. Now, we cant do nothing, all we do is depend on Jesus.. We read a bible, that we dont know who wrote. Am in USA and I can tell you life is not the way it looks. Some people set it up.

      • Bright smith

        Ade you are nothing but a demon possess with out bible and jesus the world is nothing i respect culture but i dont respect demonic culture like the one you are talking about…please yoroba man you need jesus, demonic yoruba shushu will never self you..ANY CULTURE OR REGION WITH OUT JESUS IS ONE WAY TO HELL FIRE…ade,ade,ade.,how many times did i call you be careful watch you say…

        • Ade

          How am I a demon?cos I don’t have Jesus? I’m not gonna call you ignorant. I never said Jesus is fake, I just feel like every culture has their own messenger from God. And Jesus is not for us. They brought Christianity to us in Africa and use to steal our goods and people. If you take time to study your culture and history, you would get what am saying. Why do you think great people like Fela, woke Soyinka, Achebe emphasized on cultural religion and practices.

          • Ade

            How are u even saved? You just given hope everyday in church. And they keep u happy in hope. White people here in USA have no Jesus, trust me. They live better thank kings. They left Christianity for us, and all we say is faith and hope till we die.

          • Bright smith

            are you serving a white man,you are serving God and his son jesus….the bible said we are in the world but we are not of the world…the world and material things is for the devil..ade go and perish in hell only you..what am my doing with being a celebrity to hell with celebrity…

          • Ade

            U are definitely ignorant. All u do in your comments is insult me and cast me. No need to discuss with u no more

          • Bright smith

            ok,,,,, ade we need to talk where are you now,,,,text your phone number to me please,,,,

          • empress

            i wonder if have read thestory of two men that went topray.one said “God i thank u becos i am not like that who is a sinner” the other man said “God i know i am a sinner please have mercy one me”. the prayer of that arrogant man did nt gt to God,because God was angry why he should exalt himself.the other humble dude found favour in the eyes of God.

          • Bright smith

            i am not saying am too HOLY cus am a big sinner but i know the truth that JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD….and i also no that any ANY RELIJION WITHOUT CHRIST IS A WASTE….and i will never tell somebody to live a bad life..even due am the highest occultic man, i will never tell someone that JESUS is not exsting cus is a big lie..look a stupied man like a Ade cant you see his comment to me..HE SAID I SHOULD FORGET ABOUT JESUS AND FOCUS ON DEMONIC CULTURE…..i dont have time for birds like you,cus they dont reason like human beings

          • Bright smith

            hahaha Ade even your name sound very stupied and local are you an eckarkankar or olumba olumba or a native doctor or yoruba muslim or an occultic man all those people are living by the blood of christ spread on the cross of calvarly and say FATHER PLEASE FORGIVE.stupied fool stop decieving people go and perish in hell only you….I WILL SAY IT AGAIN ANY THING WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST IS DIRECT TO HELL FIRE…ade you are pysical and spiritual bondaged by demons

          • empress

            again. people are entitled to their own beliefsthat they donot share ur thoughts does not mean that its insignificant.u cannot enforce ur thoughts or beliefs on other people.even if u know jesus, my own bible says our rightoeousness is as a filthy rag before God,and that everyman has the opportunity to make his own choice. without holiness u cannot please God. so ur attitude is also afree ticket to hel. intelligent people have the ability to hold conversations and follow up in it. instead of sayin Z when the other person saya A.

        • empress

          mr bright.i have gone thru allcoments u cannot even hold a simple conversation with anybody on here.u abuse everybody and anybody that says anything.be it negative or positive.is that ur idea of being a christian.i think not.please get a grip. its nt personal bt i thinku should stop being vulgar and rude

  • raddy214

    Hello everyone this news is fake there is no bomb blast, the writer of this article make mention of WTC Eungu State has no WTC, World Trade Centre is in USA not in Enugu. This kind of new is designed to insert fear into people and which will help the propaganda to be successful.

    u guys buhari is d best

    Who has the most chance of winning the 2015 presidential elections?

    Muhammadu Buhari / Yemi Osinbajo (68%, 41,667 Votes)
    Goodluck Jonathan / Namadi Sambo (32%, 18,688 Votes)

  • Ade

    I don’t care about Buhari or Jonathan. I know the only way Nigeria can be successful is if the youth get aggressive and take over the old fools. The youths nowadays don’t really care about ethnic or tribe differences. We just love one another as naija. May Eledumare bless naija

  • Onyenze Chinomnso

    Buhari / Goodluck Jonathan can everyone stop pointing fingers at each oda & abusing themselves b/c calling urselves illiterates actually makes u one both literally, spiritually and otherwise.
