A body has been recovered by the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) of the Nigerian security forces suspected to be the suicide bomber of yesterday’s attack in Nyanya, Abuja.
The charred body was recovered with charms and amulets, he must have used for protection, still strapped to his body. Also with him was a photo of a young boy suspected to be his son.
The charms and amulets are typical of the type used by members of the terrorist group Boko Haram.
Security sources also recovered useful leads with him, including a mobile phone.
Eyewitnesses say they saw a red Volkswagen with four men drive into the park yesterday, whom after detonated the bomb also tried to escape before the explosion.
Either way, security forces said that the suspected bomber, having conveyed the bomb to its destination, walked away to a location at the bus park where he ostensibly waited for the bomb to explode.
Security forces are investigating into how the bomb operation was carried out.
