Bomb Blast Rocks The City Of Onitsha

Bomb Blast Rocks The City Of Onitsha

Published By Family Writers

A bomb was detonated in a local restaurant in Kara community in Ogbaru, a town close to Onitsha in Anambra State on Tuesday night, May 3, 2016 around 8pm.

The Trent’s reporter visited the scene of the bomb blast and confirmed from eye-witnesses that the bomber is a middle-aged man believed to be from Northern Nigeria who pretended to be a traveller who needed a restaurant where he could “eat for N150”.

“The bomber is a man who came to the area, mostly populated by Northerners, and asked for a restaurant to eat for N150. He was directed to the eatery where he dropped his bag and asked for food. He ended up taking a few spoons of the food and leaving the place,” an eyewitness told our reporter.

“Unknown to the people, he left behind a bomb in his bag which was later detonated about 5 minutes after the mystery man left, and injured seven people including a woman identified as Chioma.”

Seven people were injured in the blast which rocked the Kara area. The victims were taken to a private hospital, Chioma Hospital. According to our source, three of the victims who were critically injured were transferred to St. Charles Borromeo Hospital in Onitsha.

“The bomber spoke in Hausa language, he looked haggard, like a traveller. Nobody suspected he had evil intentions,” another eye-witness told The Trent. “I can’t believe Boko Haram has come to Anambra. This is terrible.”

Kara is a commercial area where traders from the North sale their products like food stuff, chicken, and ram. commercial sex workers also operate from the area which shares a perimeter fence with SS Peters Catholic Church, Nkutaku.

By the time our reporter visited the scene of the bomb blast, security agencies had already visited the scene and cordoned off the crime scene. Eyewitnesses say that a team of Navy official had just left before our reporter arrived.

A Navy checkpoint is close the the place where the bomb blast occurred.

“A Naval base is not far from here,” a middle-aged trader who gave his name as Musa disclosed to our reporter.

The deputy commissioner of police in charge of operations (DCP – Ops) for Anambra State, Mr. A. J. Kokoma visited the crime scene. He was accompanied by a team of policemen which included the divisional police officers (DPOs) of police stations close to Kara. Specifically, the DPO of Okpoko, Fegge, and Onitsha Inland Town were present at the scene of the bomb blast.

    1. That is why the Commander Nnamdi Kanu called them Ohaneze ndi ara, and Ikemba Nnewi called them umu eghu. You can only save them with cane in your hands and thunder in your mouth.

  7. Those Who want Biafra without being ready for war are not only against Biafra but against peace because no one goes for peace without being ready for war, especially, when dealing with Hausa-Fulani Islamist savages!
    Fight to live or die like coward.
    Those few visionless people only interested in position and power without having what it takes, yet blocking the way for those who are capable and honest, are the biggest obstacle and enemies of Biafra. Uche Mefor, Clifford Iroanya, Om ini etc.. Take note!

  8. When We deceive ourselves hoping for miracles we may not live to see that miracle. Those in 'Radio Biafra' is it not to tell yourselves and Biafrans the truth that you having nothing much to offer apart from talk, talk, accusing and pointing fingers at others yet failing to do anything better or different?
    Biafrans, it is Time for uncompromising Truth or we all perish in cheap lies and unprofessional sentiments.

  9. If all these chaos – kidnapping, raping, killings, massacres and bomb explosions by Fulani herdsmen and Boko haram - are happening more frequently now in Biafra land in nearly one-year of Buhari presidency - wait and see what will happen in 3 more years or rather 7 more years. We are already enslaved and islamized. Did you read from the northern governors and Arewa? We must liberate ourselves now. Those heralding the Biafra movement must know that you cannot get freedom with talk, protesting, and complaining – at least not with a radical Islamic jihadist northerners and SW traitors. We are screwed with one-Nigeria.
