It was a landmark feat for the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Cross River when the personnel of the agency arrested a 31-year-old woman named Aniebet John, with three suspected Improvised Explosive Devices.



When parading the suspect in Calabar yesterday, the Commandant of NSCDC in the state, Mr Samuel Fadeyi said she was arrested on June 25.

Fadeyi said that the suspect was arrested with the three explosives including three connecting components.

According to him, the suspect was arrested in Akamkpa Local Government Area (LGA) of the state while trying to waybill the explosives to an un-identified source in Obubra LGA of the state.

"The lady was trying to send the device she had sealed in a nylon bag to Obubra LGA. We all know in Cross River as at now that Obubra LGA is exclusive because of the conflict between Nko community in Yakurr LGA and Onyadama in Obubra local government," the commandant said.

Premiliary investigation shows that the husband of the suspect work with a construction company and he might have smuggled the IED from the construction site and probably sell it to some people in the Obubra part of the state.
