This is after the investigating officer told the court that the device which was made out of trash was meant for a school project and was not of any danger to the institution.

The court cleared Joseph Kamau Ngugi after confirmation by the institution that the device was a project intended for use by the students undertaking film production course.

 The third year film production student was last week detained for five days pending investigations into the bomb scare at the multimedia university.

Bomb experts went to the scene after they received an alert and took away the device. Police reports indicated that the object is a computer motherboard with capacitors connected to it.

The incident sent students at the campus into confusion. It happened days after Inspector General Joseph Boinnet asked the police to step up vigilance in the country following a terror attack in Manchester, UK.
