‘Mother of Satan’ is believed to be the same material used in the Sri Lanka bombings that killed more than 200 over Easter, Nine News reported.

Homes around the address were evacuated on Tuesday as the explosives were too volatile to be moved and had to be detonated onsite. 

SA Police’s Bomb Response Unit and the Metropolitan Fire Service remained at the address.

Aaron Ellis, 43, appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

He was charged with possession and manufacture of explosives in relation to the material police found on Monday.

Images submitted to the court show what appears to be materials for pipe bombs and mixed chemicals stored in a fridge. 

Ellis first came to the attention of authorities in February when he allegedly posted on social media that he ‘hated Muslims’.
