Policeman’s son brings explosive to school

The victim of the explosion at the Glory Land High School, Azugwu, in the Ebonyi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Chubuike Nwani, on Monday, said his classmate and son of a policeman brought the Improvised Explosive Device to the school.


    The 16-year-old victim, a Senior Secondary School II pupil, identified his classmate, who allegedly brought the IED to the school as Mogbo Afan, a son of a mobile policeman posted to the state police command.

The IED had exploded on the school premises last Thursday and shattered Chibuike’s left hand and caused other pupils to sustain varying degrees of injury.
The incident, which occurred around 11am, caused panic in the school and its environs.

Chibuike, who is lying critically ill at the children’s ward of the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, had his left arm amputated following the incident.


    Speaking to our correspondent on his hospital bed, the victim said he was not the one who brought the explosive to the school contrary to earlier reports.

He stated that Mogbo, who brought the device to the school, ran away immediately it exploded.

Chibuike’s father, Chukwu Nwani, a native of Okposi Okwu in the Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state, said he was not happy that his son had lost a hand due to the action of a fellow pupil.

He called for justice in the matter and urged the government to come to his aid to enable him take proper care of his son.

When contacted the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Loveth Odah, who had earlier confirmed the incident, told our correspondent on Monday that she was not aware that the son of a policeman attached to the state command brought the IED to the school. Punch
