Boko Haram Member Arrested While Attempting To Bomb Murtala Mohammed Airport In Lagos
Security men of the agency, sensing his unusual movement while trying to press an object, got him apprehended, upon which he was caught with an explosive detonator.
The airport police command was promptly alerted, while the suspected bomber was handed over to them.
The suspect was then taken to the Beesam police station, Airport command, where he is currently undergoing interrogation.
Reacting to the incident, NAMA refuted that the suspected bomber was arrested at one of the its facilities at the international wing of the airport.
According to a statement by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Supo Atobatele, the suspect was making phone calls on the airport road, close to CENTREX, an annex office of NAMA, when he was apprehended by security personnel.
"The basic truth, however, is that the said suspect was on the ground making calls when the agency's security personnel accosted him.
"His incoherent explanation exposed him to the security personnel who later found on him some devices suspected to be explosives," the statement read.
The Managing Director of NAMA, Mr Ibrahim Abdulsalam, in his reaction, commended the security personnel for their vigilance.
