The Controller General of Customs, Alhaji Dikko Mohammed Inde, says the bombs being used by hoodlums in the country in recent times are locally made.
He described as untrue, allegations that men of the Customs are negligent in the discharge of their duties, leading to porous borders and consequently unhindered smuggle of importation of bombs.
The Customs boss spoke in an interview with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) monitored in Kaduna yesterday.
As he put it, “an individual can produce a bomb and most of the bombs that exploded in Nigeria were locally made.
“They are local bombs, if you see the kind of bomb that is brought from outside, if it explodes, the devastation will be enormous.
“If you observe the way it was made or the way it was detonated, you will know that these persons were either sent or were on someone else’s mission.” he said.
