700 Explosives: IG Blames Military for Ignoring Police

This Day
19 July 2011

The Inspector-General of Police (IG), Mr. Hafiz Ringim, has blamed the military authorities for not consulting the police first before going to the press on the purported 700 explosives.

A newspaper had last weekend reported that the military authorities intercepted 700 bombs being escorted by two policemen in Abuja, a story the police high command has since debunked, saying that they were quarry explosives for blasting of rocks.

Addressing journalists in his office in Abuja Monday, the IG said if the military authorities and the reporter had consulted the police immediately the vehicle was intercepted, the security agents would have shed light on the report.
