Adamawa State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Gazali, Thursday, dispelled the rumours that the blast that ripped through the Jimeta Police Station was caused by Boko Haram.
Addressing reporters after the explosion Thursday midnoon, he said the bombs that caused the blast were those recovered from Boko Haram insurgents.
Gaxzili said the recovered bomb exploded from the store used by the Police Command to warehouse exhibits.
He said that most of those affected by the blast were policemen. “Policemen were mostly affected and we don’t know the actual casualties for now as the place is not yet safe for us to go in,” Gazali said.
It was learnt that the explosion also affected the walls of Majalisa Primary School where some pupils were injured.
The state Commissioner for Information, Malam Ahmad Sajoh, confirmed that the pupils sustained minor injuries and had been treated and discharged from hospital.
