KADUNA State Police Command has arrested five suspects in connection with the bombing of the Kaduna offices of ThisDay and Sun newspapers.
 
Commissioner of Police, Kaduna State, Mohammed Abubakar, told our correspondent on the telephone on Tuesday that the suspects had been transferred to Abuja for further investigation.
 
Police had earlier arrested one of the bombers, Umar Mustapha, but four others were later apprehended
 
“Four other suspects were actually arrested later and they have been moved to Abuja along with the first suspect that was arrested on the scene of the attack and hospitalised,” the CP said.
 
Meanwhile, security agencies have yet to come to terms with the way a suicide bomber beat all security checks mounted at the entrance to the Federal capital Territory to attack ThisDay’s office at Jabi, Abuja on April 26, it has been learnt.
 
Our correspondent learnt that security operatives, including the State Security Service, the Police and the military were worried about the ease with which the hoodlums beat the security checks put in place to forestall attacks in Abuja.
 
Deployment of equipment and security teams at the entrances and exit of the FCT had given the illusion of security in Abuja until the devatsting attack which claimed three lives and injured 15 others.
 
A security source told THE PUNCH on Tuesday that security agencies could not explain how the suicide bomber driving a green Isuzu jeep was able to beat the security agencies and attacked ThisDay’s office in the heart of the city.
 
The source stated that security chiefs were surprised by the failure of security equipment and assault teams to detect the suicide bomber and his deadly cargo, stressing that a lot of brainstorming was still going on over the incident which caught security agencies by surprise.
 
“Security agencies were confused by the Thisday attacks because we believed we had covered all the entrances and exits to Abuja. we just couldn’t explain the attack and up till now, a lot of questions and brainstorming were still going on over the incident,” the source said.
