A suicide bomber was arrested, Wednesday, September 2, 2015 as he attempted to blow himself up in a crowded bus park in Bauchi State.

According to a security source, the man was trying to gain entrance into the motor park when vigilant security operatives spotted explosives on him.

“The man came very early in the morning, around 6am, and was trying to enter. But he was unable to achieve his aim,” the unnamed source told The Cable. “Security at the gate detected the bomb, and they caught him. Most of the parks now have metal detectors since Boko Haram has been targeting crowds of people that can usually be found at parks.”
