News » Politics


A joint team of riot policemen and other security agencies attached to the Lagos Business District (CBD) yesterday  arrested a foreign national said to be a Sudanese for planting bombs to unleash terror in Lagos State bus terminal.

Our correspondent learnt that three substances suspected to be bomb explosives were discovered in the heart of Lagos Island in the early hours of yesterday by the Police.

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.

The three explosives were immediately taken away by the Police bomb squad from Ikeja Police command.

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 Homes.

They said the policeman who 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.

In the ensuing milieu, a foreigner suspected to be an indigene of Sudan earlier sited in the area  was trying to escape and he was apprehended by an official of the CBD identified as Kareem Saidi.
