KANO, Nigeria: Nigerian police on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) uncovered a plot to bomb a secondary school in the restive northeastern city of Gombe by defusing a car laden with explosives that had been abandoned there, a spokesman said. Police bomb experts found 12 improvised explosives concealed in a car that was abandoned on the premises of the state-run Pilot secondary school, following a tip-off, Fwaje Attajiri told Agence France-Presse. “Our ordnance experts discovered 12 IEDs [improvised explosive devices]in the trunk of the car left in the vicinity of the school after we were alerted,” he said. “The explosives had the capacity of causing maximum damage and would have caused huge casualty had they detonated in the school with a high student population,” he said.
