They are Abdulazeez Muhazab (27) and Isiaka Salihu (25), both from Okene, Kogi State. The arrest of these suspects foiled another attempt by the terrorists to undertake another attack in the FCT.”

 

Arase also said “Recovered from them were 12 already prepared and primed Home Made Explosives (HME) concealed in 12 Fayrouz soft drink cans, 28 pieces of electric detonators and huge quantities of IED-making materials. The suspects are aiding detail police investigations into their broad terror network and will be brought to deserved justice.”
