August 19, 2014 – Boko Haram Suicide Bomber, Handicapped Man Arrested With Bomb Near Lagos Airport

The crippled man pictured above was arrested yesterday along airport road in Ikeja Lagos.

The Nigerian Airspace Management Authority, NAMA spokesman said the suspect was caught while talking on the phone and heading towards the airport.

Here is an official Press Release by NAMA on the suspected Boko Haram member’s arrest:

“The attention of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency ,NAMA, has been drawn to insinuations that a suspected suicide bomber was arrested at one of the agency’s facilities at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Monday.

“The basic truth however, is that the said suspect was on the ground making phone calls along the airport road close to CENTREX, an annex office of NAMA when the agency’s security personnel accosted him and questioned his presence.”

“His incoherent explanation exposed him to the security personnel who later found on him some devices suspected to be explosives. He was subsequently handed over to the Airport Police Command for further investigation.”
