The police have defused a bomb at Dalori internally-displaced persons camp (IDP) in Konduga LGA of Borno.

Dalori camp is located a few kilometers away from Maiduguri.

A source said there was a bomb scare around 6am when an item concealed in a sack suspected to be an improvised-explosive device (IED) was spotted.

This was said to have caused residents of the camp to abandon their shelters and flee.

The source said for about three hours, everyone including armed police officers at the camp stood far away, while waiting for the anti-bomb squad to come and verify the content of the items.

He said the team later arrived and discovered that it was an explosive. The IED was, however, successfully detonated without causing any casualties.

In April, the Nigerian Army said troops of Operation Desert Sanity discovered workshops for making IEDs in Sambisa forest.

In the same month, an IED was found in Shanono, a community in Rigasa, Igabi LGA of Kaduna state, making it the fifth one discovered in less than a month.
