He said bomb experts were promptly drafted to the church to sweep the area.
“During their check, it was discovered that Improvised Explosive Devices in forms of refrigerator compressor concealed in sack bags were discovered,” Mr. Enwerem said. “One was promptly detonated at the scene because it was on a timer. The other one was dis-alarmed and then taken away for detonation.”
The police spokesperson said those arrested have not been directly linked to planting the deadly explosives.
“They were arrested because we believe we might be able to obtain information that could lead to the arrest of the perpetrators from them,” Mr. Enwerem said. “Investigations are ongoing.”
The police believe the explosives were planted on Saturday night and timed to explode after worshippers had gathered for worship on Sunday.
