The Nigeria police on Tuesday in Abuja said it had arrested two suspects in connection with the October 2 bombings in Nyanya and Kuje in the federal capital territory.

Solomon Arase, the inspector general of police, confirmed the arrest at the conference of senior police officers, saying the suspects aged 25 and 27, were from Kogi.

He said the arrest had foiled an attempt by the suspects to undertake another attack in Abuja.

Arase said 12 already prepared and prime Home Made Explosives (HME) concealed in 12 Farouk soft drinks cans and 28 pieces of electric detonators were recovered from the suspects.


“The suspects are aiding detailed police investigations into their broad terror network and will be brought to deserve justice,” he said.

Arase said the police would continue to deploy its potentials to ensure public safety that could be attained by the cooperation of the public.

He urged the media to continue to support the police in order to attain the national crime and security vision of the current administration.


About 18 people were killed, while 41 people sustained injuries during multiple blasts that rocked the town on October 2.
