There was pandemonium on Thursday at the Nigeria Permanent Mission House in New York following bomb alarm raised by security agencies.
Panic engulfed the atmosphere at the house located on Second Avenue, 44th Street as people scamper for safety while the American Police cordoned-off the place to conduct a search which lasted for about 30 minutes.
Source said the alarm came after the police discovered a bag carelessly dropped close to the Kudirat Abiola corner of the house, near the office of the Consul General, Habib Baba (pictured above).
The strange bag was suspected to be containing an explosive.
Although the content of the bag was not disclosed, normalcy, however, returned after the environs were cleared and the security agencies asked people to resume their daily business.
