LEADERSHIP gathered that the four men arrested at Anguwan Dawaki near former Bank of the North office, Suleja, an area in Suleja which is known for notorious activities, also has a bakery near a building where the four suspects were stuffing the bombs into the loaves.

It was gathered that luck ran out on them between 2pm and 3pm yesterday when the JTF caught them on a routine check up with the bomb hidden under the loafs of bread.

Attempt to get any of the officials of JTF to confirm the incident proof abortive but a senior security officer who preferred anonymity told LEADERSHIP that the men were transferred immediately to Abuja for further interrogation.

The Security source also told LEADERSHIP that the men, before they were transferred to Abuja, had confessed that they were sent to detonate the bomb after they were given N100,000 each. It was however not clear where they wanted to detonate the bomb.
