The Nigerian military this afternoon announced that it has taken into custody a suspect in Wednesday’s bomb attack on the convoy of former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
Scores of innocent people were killed while Gen. Buhari’s armoured Jeep was damaged in the early afternoon attack which took place in Kaduna, North-West Nigeria.
A Defence Headquarters statement uploaded on the official website of its Information Department said: “Troops are holding a man suspected to be connected with the explosion targeted at General Buhari on Wednesday.
“The young man who was apprehended by military patrol team that swooped on the area immediately after the explosion, had disguised as a woman clad in female garb to exude femininity with a brazier affixed to his chest.
“The suspect was arrested while trying to fizzle into a crowd of onlookers when the patrol team arrived the scene.
“Youths in the area attempted to mob him while he was being arrested but were restrained by troops who quickly whisked him away in an armoured personnel carrier.
“He is currently being interrogated by security agencies in a bid to ascertain his links.”
