Suicide bomber smashed by own bomb

 

A suicide bomber was on Tuesday smashed by his own explosive device in Bauchi, after travelling by public transport for more than 393 km with the device from Yola , Adamawa state.

The Bauchi Police command on Wednesday confirmed that the bomber died while receiving treatment at the Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital.

Witnesses say, he travelled in a commercial bus to Bauchi, concealing the bomb in his backpack but the device detonated, when he carelessly dropped the bag on the floor to urinate in a corner.

Shortly after the incident, while conscious and in pains, the bomber told onlookers – including police officers who had come to arrest him – that he was part of a larger cell of the terrorist group, Boko Haram sect who are infiltrating the city to carry out an assignment in “God’s name.”

He said his colleagues were on their way to the city from other towns.

When thoroughly searched, a gun was found on him, which the police reportedly took away.

A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer DSP Idris Abdullahi Abubakar stated that “Upon search at the scene by police bomb expert, it was discovered that the unidentified man was hit by an IED he was carrying. On search his person, Police recovered one revolver pistol, with five rounds of ammunition and he was rushed to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital but died in the course of treatment”

The Boko Haram sect recently began its latest wave of attacks on churches, government buildings and security agents.

On Sunday, three churches were bombed in Kaduna state while services were on, killing 21 worshippers. It sparked reprisals that killed 29 Muslims. Counter reprisals have killed at least five.

Since 2009, over 1500 Nigerians have been murdered in various attacks masterminded by the group.

    He that kills by sword will die by sword! God of heaven cannot send him to kill innocent person for He said thou shall not kill.It is Satan that sent him and not God.Again,we should learn the modus operandus of the sect.For them to be using public transport means larger groups of people are potentially endangered.Transport sector should be organized in such a way that intending travellers should be thoroughly checked at the point of departure by security agents and the drivers should be barred from carrying people on the road.This possible when security agents cross check the manifest on the roads. Passengers should board vehicles at designated point by registered transporters.All transporters should be compared to scan the passengers and their luggages in the presence of security agents.
    This will help us a lot to curtail the menace of the sect.
