Nigeria’s security agencies have been doing their job well in recent times and they deserve some very serious and sincere commendation. As you read this, a joint team of riot policemen and other security agencies attached to the Lagos Business District (CBD) on Thursday arrested a foreign national said to be a Sudanese for planting bombs to unleash massive terror in Lagos State.
Witnesses said the grenades planted in front of the Union Homes Company gate along Nnamdi Azikwe road, Tom Jones area, opposite Access Bank branch and LSDPC house, was discovered by one of the Police Mobile security man attached to the area.
From what we gathered, the observant police officer became suspicious of a man who earlier came in a Jeep and started distributing N1,000 notes to beggars, and later asked them to vacate the area before he drove off…
As the residents increasingly become uncomfortable with insecurity and predictions of bomb attacks, the security operatives revealed that the bombs found in Lagos have been programmed to explode around 1pm when passengers throng LAGBUS terminals to board buses to their respective destinations.
Three substances suspected to be bomb explosives were discovered in the heart of Lagos Island in the early hours of Thursday by the Police. The three explosives were immediately taken away by the Police bomb squad from Ikeja Police command, according to Leadership.
In the ensuing milieu, a foreigner suspected to be a Sudanese earlier sited in the area was trying to escape and he was apprehended by an official of the CBD identified as Kareem Saidi. Kudos to the police.
