June 10, 2014 – Passenger Who Tried To Blow up Delta Plane From Lagos To Atlanta With Dynamite Arrested In Dakar Senegal After Flight Diversion

Alleged Terrorist With Diplomatic Passport Boarded Delta Flight With A Bag Of Dynamites

It was a sigh of relief for Atlanta-bound passengers on a Delta flight from Lagos on Monday after the plane was diverted to Senegal when a threat was detected.

According to one of the passengers on the Atlanta-bound Delta flight, another passenger suspected to be a terrorist allegedly smuggled a bag full of dynamite on the airplane.

When the explosives were detected on the airplane, the flight was safely diverted to Dakar in Senegal where the diplomatic terrorist was arrested.

Read what one of the passengers who witnessed the whole saga said:

Security threat on DL 55 from LOS – ATL. Plane safely diverted to Dakar. A man arrested. Passengers deplaned.
Dunno what that guy was trying to do, but the electronic systems on the plane shut down! Lights were flickering everywhere
Bits and pieces coming in. Seems this man actually tried to blow up our plane.
Chatter is that he boarded with a diplomatic passport
How do you smuggle a bag with dynamite on a plane. Unbelievable stuff.
As long as our government treats the growing insurgency lightly, the terrorists will be emboldened
The Dakar op to arrest the suspect was so calm and well coordinated. Not one siren. No intimidation. Scores of soldiers in formation.
The top conversation in Dakar was “if it was Naija”. We’d all probably have been laid face down, shots randomly fired to “ward off others”
The number and size of soldiers who took him away, well God be his help
Meanwhile, as we disembarked at Atlanta, US Customs and police were waiting with a list (with photos). Incomprehensible crazy stuff
Finally home. Can’t say enough how grateful I am to God, and the awesome @delta DL55 crew. #SuperHeroes
While we were still flying, @delta sent an email apology regarding the incident, plus 20k bonus air miles. Decent gesture, I’d say
And excellent customer service. Because a printed apology was shared to all passengers boarding from San Juan #CustomerService #DL55

The passenger also took on Punch News for putting his name on their report without permission

“I believe @MobilePunch should have sought my permission before putting my name in their news report.
Randomly putting my name (or anyone’s) in a news report is wrong. @MobilePunch should’ve done better.”

To have smuggled a bag of dynamite unnoticed is a security flaw at Muritala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos. The Delta Airline staff that checked him in must be thoroughly investigated because he must have bribed them.

Thank God they all arrive safely.

      Dont mind naija govt and nigerians themselves. 9ja govt is complicit in the whole terror saga. They aint telling u the truth about BH yet. Journalists are so lazy to independently investigate stuff. Diplomatic terrorist, ask how he got this kind of passport, govt will be like eh..ehha..uhnn…we will investigate. Investigation my foot.

    Tired of these hopeless moslem fools. If you worship a great god,you don’t have to kill in his name to change the world. Every time you do that, you are actually making a complete fool of yourself and the allah you worship.

How do you describe ex german president,hitler(non moslem) who massacred and castrated millions of jews and some other diabolic acts being perpetrated by non moslems all over the world? Study present and Past actions of non moslems in these countries: Democratic Republic of Congo, Ukrain, Liberian, lraq, lybia etc. Dan, you are a ****** of world peace, progress and unity. *****

    D Christian‘s God is JEHOVAH EL-SHADAI. He is d God of peace n He fight 4 Himself. He is d creator of Heaven n Earth n evrytin in it. He doesn‘t kill nor shed innocent blood 2 feel pleased. He is d MOST Holy God. He is d MOST high God. He is beyond human discription n comprehension. He is d MOST supreme Spirit.
    H E I S J E H O V A H.

    Bt d moslem‘s god is allah, dt hides behinds IT‘S worshippers yll they fights IT‘S battles. It doesn‘t undstnd any lauguage nt even English apart 4rm arabic. D only place it cld b found is d direction of d raising Sun. It send it‘s worshippers 2 go kill n shed innocent blood, hence d terrorists we hv in d World 2day. “BUT“, Our God is Ominipresence:-He‘s evrywhr. Ominipotent:-He‘s all powerful. Ominiscience:- He‘s all knowing.
    He is d ONLY 2ru, living God. All oda gods r dead, powerless, demonic, wicked, blood-thirsty n false which hv dia headquaters in HELL.

      Rethink, dont mind them. They are comfortable pointing fingers at muslims. And guess who contribute to this problems? Politicians and media. And they claim they have Pastors who can tell the future, cure this and that, kick out the devil and all that. Now there is real devil (BH) but there but ****** are idled.

      Instead they fake BH confessions. Performing fake miracles yet ***** choir dont have the brain to think like. “If my ****** could cast out devil in this man, why cant he tell us who sponsor BH”. They never get to ask this question. They have been brainwashed to think any dis-speakable acts that happen is always Muslims. ******

    Ok first of all it was not a bomb. It was an electronic device attached to a charging devise that was not made for the cellphone. The passenger left it in the lavatory charging. I worked with one of the pilots on that flight the other day and he showed me the picture of the so call bomb.
