Abia Government says it has begun investigation “to unravel the source and nature” of the suspected explosive devices found in Union Primary School, Afaraukwu Umuahia.
According to Kalu, government has started working with relevant security agencies in the state concerning the development.
The statement explained that “initial examination of the devices shows evidence of corrosion leading to suspicion of the materials being relics of the civil war era.
He further stated that government had temporarily closed the school.
