Bomb Blast Plot Foiled at Lagos Airport

The accident-prone aviation industry would today have witnessed yet another air-borne disaster after the fatal ADC crash, when a man, attempted to smuggle explosives into a Bellview airplane flying the Lagos-Abuja route.
A man whose name was given as Michael Dickson was arrested by security operatives on Saturday morning, when he brought some explosives to the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos and attempted to have them on board the aircraft.
The suspect's mission was to mix the explosives packaged in cylinders with luggages belonging to Bellview crew and disappear, but was spotted by officials of the airline and Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) security personnel who subsequently apprehended him.When interrogated, the suspect said the items in the cylinders were microphones and was asked to open them but refused.The 'cylinders' were forcefully opened by the security operatives who discovered that they contained explosives.The suspect confessed he was detailed by somebody (whose name was not given), to plant the explosives and disappear, adding that the alleged sponsor of the suspect who was to travel by road to Abuja the same day was already on the run.
The suspect has since been taken in the custody of SSS(State Security Service) operatives while a search is on for the alleged "sponsor".
