There was pandemonium in Lagos today when three bags containing objects suspected to be bombs were discovered by traders, residents and motorists on Tom Jones Street, near the ever busy Idumota market, Lagos Island, Lagos State.
Eye-witness reports have it that when the traders saw the three bags, they immediately informed the Divisional Police Officer, DPO in charge of Ebute-Ero Division, SP Barrister John Otahumele who responded by dispatching men to the scene.
Quick to respond, men from a paramilitary unit wearing gray and brown uniforms arrived and removed the abandoned parcels.
