Got quite a number of calls from people around the area this morning about a bomb that was discovered in a hotel in Ikeja. According to eyewitnesses, a bomb was found in a room at Reliance Hotel located on Emina Crescent off Amore Crescent, off Toyin street, Ikeja.
The hotel shares same fence with St Leo Catholic Church and is directly opposite Assemblies of God church. According to hotel sources, three guys slept in the hotel last night and checked out this morning. Housekeeper went to clean the room and discovered the ‘surprise’. The hotel alerted the anti-bomb squad. The streets surrounding the area was condoned off for hours as the anti-bomb squad worked to detonate the bomb. When they did, they brought the bomb out with a pillow and left it on the streets for a few minutes, then left with it in their blue vehicle. . Hopefully the police will say something about this incident.
