Gombe Bomb Blast Masterminds Arrested
Nigerian troops have arrested two masterminds of last year’s bomb blast at Gombe Line Transport Services, defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, has said.
“Two masterminds of last year bombing at the Gombe Line Transport Services have been arrested after a shootout with troops in Gombe on Sunday. The two suspected high profile terrorists were eventually arrested following surveillance and intelligence operations that tracked them to a check point at Bajoga in the state,” Olukolade said.
Olukolade said one of the suspects was injured in the shootout and is being treated at a military hospital while they are questioned.
