The police will deploy the 60 Explosives Ordinance Disposal (EOD) operatives trained
by the United States on new techniques in mines and IED detection.
The operatives, on Friday, concluded the four-week training at the EOD Command on Bank Anthony Way, Ikeja, Lagos.
The training was facilitated by the U.S Mission, Nigeria, through the Anti-Terrorism Assistant (ATA) programme in conjunction with the Nigeria Police.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, who was represented by the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Operations, Joshak Habila, said the officers will go back and train their colleagues and subordinates.
