P.M.NEWS gathered that at about 2:30 p.m., civils servants at the secretariat ran helter-skelter as the rumour spread that a bomb was planted there.

“Many of us closed work at 2:30 p.m. when we were directed by our senior officers to vacate the secretariat immediately for safety,” said a civil servant who craved anonymity.

Majiya described the speculation as an attempt by some disgruntled elements to disrupt the peace the state has been enjoying, adding that security forces are not taking any thing by chance as they are always ready to protect lives and property in the state.
