It was later declared to be a viable device following a security operation and was taken away for forensic examination.

Sinn Féin Upper Bann MLA John O’Dowd condemned those responsible for the device.

“The ongoing criminal activities of gangs in the area is a blight on the decent people of Enniskeen and beyond,” O’Dowd said.

“These thugs have terrorised this community for too long and must be brought before the courts.

“I would urge anyone with information to bring it to the police.”
