Detonated Or Disarmed? by jereal(m): 5:03pm On Jun 05, 2012
Is it me not seeing properly or what...!? else...
Why do Nigerian papers always use the word detonate instead of disarm or defuse...!!!
Security operatives discover a bomb & prevent it from exploding, the media say the police successfully found & detonated a bomb...!
What the hell...!? I've seen this countless times...

An instance...

The Police Commissioner, Mr
Emmanuel Ayeni, said the officers
were able to detonate one of the
bombs while the second exploded,
injuring no person.

He said, “When my officers and men
with the Anti-Bomb Squad arrived in
the scene, they were able to detonate
the second bomb and luckily, the one
that exploded did not harm anybody
or cause damage to the hostel block.

I think the error is from the journalist...
I'm pretty sure the commissioner and his anti-bomb squad knew exactly what they were sayinggrin
