Nigerian Police Deny Bomb Explosion in Abuja, Attribute Incident to Overheated Refuse Container

The FCT Police Command has refuted bomb explosion claims in Abuja, specifically addressing the incident near a refuse dump in Maitama.

Contrary to initial reports, the loud blast was not bomb-related but resulted from an overheated metal refuse container exploding under intense heat.

Two evacuators sustained injuries, and a swift response by the police, including the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit, ensured a thorough assessment of the situation.

The affected individuals are currently receiving medical attention at Maitama General Hospital.

Police Public Relations Officer SP Josephine Adeh advised the public to opt for plastic or rubber containers for safer waste disposal, emphasising the importance of avoiding metal refuse bins.
