The Lagos State Police Command on Wednesday said that no bomb was planted at the Ikeja Local Government Secretariat, contrary to speculations.
Mr Samuel Jinadu, the commandâ€™s spokesman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that a thorough search by the commandâ€™s Anti-bomb Unit did not show any explosive.
Jinadu urged the local governmentâ€™s workers to go about their duties, saying no bomb or any explosive was planted in the premises.
He gave the assurance that the police would continue to monitor developments in and around the secretariat.
The spokesman said that the command was committed to the safety of lives and property in nationâ€™s commercial centre.
NAN reports that there was a pandemonium at the secretariat on Wednesday as rumours went round that a bomb was planted in the councilâ€™s accounts department.
