THE PSNI say officers found “nothing untoward” after reports of a bomb had been left at the west Belfast home of Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams.
The Sinn Fein leader was warned that a bomb was left at his family home in the city where his wife Colette also lives.
It follows a spate of attacks and threats on Sinn Féin figures that the party blames on dissident republicans.
However, sources close to the dissident republican groups are denying any responsibility, blaming the incidents on a ‘black propaganda campaign’ to boost Sinn Fein’s votes in tomorrow’s general election.
“The Shinners are getting it hard on the doorsteps in certain areas over the whole child sex abuse cover up,” said a dissident source.
“Even their old guard are drawing back their support from the party, particularly in places like west Belfast.”
Mr Adams said he would not be deterred by the incident.
“There can be no place for these type of actions nor will they deter Sinn Féin from working to advance the peace process and advance our political objectives.”
