Nigeria: 47 Jahre alte Landmine gefunden

Ein erschreckender Fund aus Nigeria zeigt wieder: Landminen und ähnliche Waffen bedrohen auch jahrzehnte nach dem Krieg noch die Bevölkerung. Die Mine stammt laut Polizeiberichten noch aus dem Biafra-Krieg. (auf Englisch)

An object that caused panic in Ebonyi State has been found to be a landmine from the Nigerian civil war that ended 47 years ago, the police have stated.

When the object was discovered at a river bank in Onu Ezeukwu Uzor, Okposi, in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state, residents fled the community as they suspected it was an improvised explosive device, IED, recently planted to cause havoc.

But the fears were allayed on Monday after an analysis by the police bomb squad revealed the object was a civil war relic.

The spokesperson of the police in the state, Jude Madu, said the object was taken for examination at the Police forensic headquarters in Abuja.
