(Puspen TNI). TNI personnel managed to defuse and evacuate an active rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) discovered by residents in Congo.
This was said by Major Inf Ahmad Ridho, the Company Commander of XXXIX-C Rapid Deployable (RDB) MONUSCO after leading the discovery and the handling of the explosive in the form of active RPG ammunition in the garden, in Walungu area, Congo, Monday (25/5/2021).
It was Mr. Justin, who was about to work in the garden when he saw an RPG lying on the ground. He immediately reported what he saw to the Chief of Groupment Mr. Karazo who then requested the XXXIX-C RDB task force to send their Bomb Disposal Squad which was 1.2 KM away off his place.
Upon the resident's report, Major Inf Ahmad Ridho and his team checked the scene right away and ordered Lt Czi Richo to perform an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) procedure. Once defused, the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) was brought to a safe place.
"We are very grateful for the assistance performed by the RDB Task Force" said Mr Karazo.
