Abia State Government has shut the Union Primary School, Afaraukwu located in the Umuahia North Local Government Area of the state as “suspected explosive devices” were discovered in the school.

The State Commissioner for Information, John Kalu, said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement read, “Abia State Government is currently working with relevant security agencies in the state to unravel the source and nature of the suspected explosive devices found at Union Primary School, Afaraukwu in Umuahia North LGA.
