A body has been recovered by the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) of the Nigerian security forces suspected to be the suicide bomber responsible for the bomb blast which occurred at the Nyanya El’Rufai Motor Park, Abuja.
The charred body was recovered with charms and amulets, he must have used for protection, still strapped to his body.
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 at the time of the incident, 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.
