A plot by some suspected terrorists to plant Improvised Explosive Device (IED) at the popular Wuse Market in Abuja has been thwarted by a special intelligence response team set up by Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, Daily Sun can reveal.

The elite team, made up of highly-trained intelligence and operations officers, has so far, arrested a total of five suspected terrorists who will be paraded before the media any moment from now and, thereafter, charged to court in the next few days.

It was gathered that the terrorists, who were planning to carry out their attack in various parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), were picked up from their hideouts at Karamajiji village behind the National Military Cemetery along Abuja Airport Road and Iddo village located directly behind the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Two others were picked up from a hideout at Dan-Asato village, in Suleja, while another was picked up at Gauraka village, also in Suleja, a satellite town in Niger State, near Abuja.
Items recovered from the terrorists, according to a top security officer, include various kinds of chemicals used for making IEDs numbering over 30, plastic containers and a registered motor vehicle licence.

The police special intelligence response team also recovered 15 bombs in the four locations mentioned, which suspects said were to be planted at strategic location in the nation’s capital.

Similarly, over 20 detonators, one laptop, two books on bomb-making and various kinds of weapons were recovered from the terrorists, who are now said to be relocating to Abuja.
Two of the suspects were said to have been arrested on October 6, four days after they attacked Kuje and Nyanya on October 2, while the other three were arrested between October 8 and October 17, respectively.

A top security officer, who asked not to be named, told Daily Sun that the suspects, who are presently being interrogated and who had made useful statement, confessed that they also engaged in robbery attacks to raise money to buy materials needed to make bombs.

They confessed that before they were arrested they were planning to carry out their attack on Wuse Market on Friday, October 9, a week after the Kuje and Nyanya attacks.
When contacted, a senior police officer, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the arrest of the suspected terrorists in Abuja and said they may be paraded by the police in Abuja on Thursday or Friday.

Countries fighting to end Boko Haram have banned Hijab, all those arrested and convicted as members of the sect are executed and their soldiers don't issue final warning, they deal with the insurgents. Things are different in Nigeria
