According to CP Adeyinka, “On 21/2/2019 at about 1945hrs, the crew at the same time as on stop and seek responsibility along Ughelli–Patani street intercepted a white Toyota Hilux Van unregistered, which refused to forestall.

 “The team gave the vehicle a hot chase, the two (2) occupants abruptly stopped and escaped into a nearby bush. Upon thorough search of the vehicle, 128 pieces of 60mm.156 kg emulsion chemical substances and 5 pieces of electric detonators all concealed in several black bagco bags along with Hilux van were recovered.

He assured Deltans against the backdrop of the recently recovered IEDs, stressing that members of the public should be vigilant and security conscious, and report any strange objects to the police or any security agency nearest to them.
