DIA Arrests Eight Over Plans To Bomb Abuja On Sallah Day
The Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) yesterday, arrested eight suspects over alleged plan to detonate bombs in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja during the forth coming Sallah celebration scheduled for Thursday, September 24, 2015.
Checks confirm that the suspects were arrested by DIA when they sneaked into the FCT to perfect and execute the heinous crime.
Though the identity of the suspects were not revealed, our source said the DIA has already taken the eight men into custody and are currently undergoing screening and interrogation, adding that useful information is being extracted from the suspects.
The Nigeria’s capital of Abuja had in the past come under several bomb attacks, mostly carried out by the dreaded Boko Haram group which has claimed responsibility. No less than 30,000 lives with properties worth billions of naira have been lost to the dastard acts of this group of terrorists.
Some of the places attacked by the terrorist group includes the United Nations country office in Abuja, the headquarters of the Nigeria Police, Emab Plaza located in Wuse 2, Nyanya motor park, as well as the popular Abacha barracks, all within the Federal Capital Territory.
