A bomb blast occurred today in the Jimeta Division of the Nigerian Police in Yola Adamawa state around 10:15 am.
Our correspondent who was at the scene of the incident reports that some policemen on guard were affected with various degrees of injuries.
The bomb was believed to be one of Improvised Explosive Devices [IEDs] recovered from Boko Haram and kept under the custody of the police armory division of the station.
The station is strategically located in the heart of Jimeta, the Administrative headquarters of Adamawa State and is close to a Central Primary School, Nigerian Prisons, NITEL and Jimeta old Market.
Details will be given later as officials declined giving comments as what led to the explosion of the IED.
