PFNI says attack was ‘futile act of terrorism’

Chair of the Police Federation for Northern Ireland, Mark Lindsay, has condemned today’s attempt on the life of an off-duty Officer.

An undercar booby trap bomb, which had failed to detonate, was spotted at the Officer’s car at Shandon Golf Club

Mr Lindsay said: “This is an appalling attack which, although it targeted a Police Officer, would have been wholly indiscriminate if it had detonated. 

“We are fortunate that we are not looking at fatalities as a result of this wanton and wholly futile act of terrorism. This device could have exploded at any time killing both the Officer and anyone nearby. We should have left the days where terrorists attempt to murder Police Officers long behind us and those responsible need to be made more aware of this by society.

“I would urge my colleagues to double their personal security measures to ensure that the terrorists fail in their attempts to murder police.

“Those who construct and plant devices such as this should be shown again that the community does not support them. Anyone who saw anything that would assist in finding those who carried out this attack should contact the PSNI.”
