‘Terrorist’ blows self up to evade arrest as police close in on him

A suspected terrorist in Keke community along Ibrahim Haske Road, Kaduna Millennium City, reportedly blew himself up with Improvised Explosive Device (IED) when security operatives closed in on him and he found it impossible to evade arrest.

A source who disclosed this to a Daily Post correspondent on Monday in Kaduna said security operatives had arrived at the suspect’s abode at 1:00 am as the neighbourhood woke up to the sound of gunshots.

According to the source, the suspect opened fire on security operatives when he discovered that his house was surrounded. This led to an exchange of gunfire. After he was overpowered by the superior firepower of security forces, he resorted to the use of explosives to blow himself up.

Daily Post further learnt that after the incident, security operatives ransacked his house and discovered an AK-47 rifle along with two other IEDs that were later defused by the anti-bomb squad.
