by Victor Ndubuisi

The Nigerian Army has reported the recovery of 93 unexploded munitions (ordnance) at the Ikeja Military Cantonment in Lagos.

The finding was made during the ongoing operation known as ‘Exercise Clean Sweep,’ according to a statement issued by the army on Thursday.

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the operation began on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, with the Army intending to sanitise the area that was the epicentre of the bomb explosion in 2002.

According to the Army’s investigation, the recovered explosives differed in terms of calibre and features.


Colonel Abdulrazaq Kazeem, Director of Explosives Search and Disposal and Exercise Clean Sweep Coordinator, stated during his first briefing that a total of 93 unexploded ordnance had been retrieved from the site thus far.

Despite prior efforts to clear and dispose of explosives at the site, he claims that there have been multiple instances of unexploded ordnance being recovered within and surrounding the bomb blast. This, he claims, poses a substantial threat to the safety and security of Cantonment residents and the surrounding environment.

“The moment we reach maximum limits of explosives within our holding area, such ordinances will be moved to the range. If we get to the explosive limits today, I will move to the range today. We would not exceed a kilogram above the explosive limits because it is measured in kilograms. We wouldn’t cross that line. At 93, we have not yet reached the limits,” he reiterated.

On his part, the Safety Officer, Lt Col Oluseyi Oladapo Bamikole, said necessary measures had been put in place “for the safety of personnel as they have made adequate equipment available including demarcations and trained personnel to identify UXO before recovery from the site.”
