Lagos bomb blast: Police arrest prime suspect • 9 others named


The principal suspect who masterminded the explosion that rocked Lagos on Monday morning has allegedly confessed to the crime. The suspect simply identified as William was said to have named nine other accomplices. Police sources at the Area E Command, FESTAC, where the suspect was cooling his heels, said the man was fingered because he distorted some evidence at the explosion scene.

Chairman of he Sand Dealers Association, Amuwo Odofin, FESTAC Link Road Chief Pius Oladele was on Monday morning killed by an explosion. He was blown into pieces following the blast. The bomb device was planted directly where he was sitting under the FESTAC/Amuwo link bridge. A police officer, an inspector, described as a friend, who was with him at the time was seriously injured. A source told Daily Sun that the man had been talking to the police on how he and other eight persons planned the elimination of his boss.

The police source did not reveal the reason the chairman of the sand dealer association was murdered but an unconfirmed report said the killing might not be far from the fact that some people wanted to take over the leadership of the association. A sand dealer, who simply identified himself as Wasiu, had earlier told Daily Sun that “Oladele had been the chairman for over a decade, people see him as life chairman and you know there is a lot of money involved in the business.” He was killed two weeks after buying a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). When contacted, the state Commissioner of Police (CP), Umar Manko said it was true that a man was being held in connection with the explosion. “But we cannot just conclude that he was responsible. We are still investigating. Once we conclude our investigation we will let you know.”

    What type of report is this, Nigeria police? You once admitted at same time exonerating, why? Then what is the need of chasing other remaining 9 man gangs? Pls round them up and quickly transfer their matter to law court before you guys will conclude to say it was a mistaken identity, an outfit with double standard.

    • Ashiwaju-D-Ole February 21, 2013 at 2:34 pm

      Kill them for what. The greedy man who wanted to chairmanship the dand association for life deserved death by any means.

      Its only in Nigeria everybody takes advantage of his position and turn it to life position.

      he die well bastard he is and bastard he go.

      useless man

    The CP, Umar Manko obviously is a Hausa/fool-ani who will go at all lenghts to cover up Hausa/fool-ani involvement in the blast. Everyone knows that the bomb is a moslem boko haram creation.

    • Ben Edict February 21, 2013 at 10:46 am

      Where is Hausa in this matter? Is there anywhere a Hausa or Fulani mentioned in the story? Why are you (igbos) so myopic in your judgment? What can you said about Johnson (Your Igbo brother) who almost wipe out an entire family because he was jilted? You better go to school and learn so that you can become a wise man.

      • Nneka February 21, 2013 at 4:51 pm

        pls for your information, johnson is from delta state, don’t blame igbos for calling Hausa names, you know a lot of us lost a lot of people in the North we are still nursing that wound. it is not easy to forget. However, hausa shold not be blamed for everthing.

    • hasoby February 21, 2013 at 3:05 pm

      Ochiaghandigbo u are d most supid person today in dis forum. Why can’t u Igbos reason well 4 Godsake. The fact that u people so much hate the Hausa/fulanis bcs of the humiliation u surfer in thier hands during the war does npot mean u should become mad and lose ur sense of reasoning. Is it not ur folks perpetrating all sorts of evil here and there in Nigeria and beyond? Tufia kwa ndi Igbo.

  4. Christopher Iyirhiaro February 21, 2013 at 3:09 am

    No one should blame the comment of he police at all. For now that’s what they can say to avoid the same public who’s accusing them of inconsistency now, coming back at them tomorrow to say they were not rational enough in their investigation before coming to the public with wrong information. To establish culpability in this type of case, takes a while, thus we must be patient with the ploice

  5. Odogwu_Aganaga February 21, 2013 at 3:37 am

    look! editor sir; he is suspected of masterminding; he is not “the suspect who masterminded.” nigerians have a problem with english syntax; plus the sun has no copy editor who ought to check the pages meticulously before you put the paper out. no fex sir, a-beg. ranka shia dede sir; eku alo oh sir.

  6. ihatenigeria February 21, 2013 at 4:36 am

    These yorubas can do anything to get rich quick. So, the reason they killed their brother is so they will be enjoying the money coming to this man, take over his office as chairman of the association and his new suv. This is why i reject this yoruba tribe and all they stand for. Whoever is begging us to be one with these people is wasting his time. We cannot be one with them because we want to move forward as a nation outside this unserviceable and
    unworkable nigeria which yoruba belong. Criminals !

    The issue is that there was a Bomb and the late chairman was a target but it is ridiculous for the Cp to conclude in the first place that there was no Bomb and that it was mere electrical spark. Now , The suspect has been arrested and confessed and the same Cp is telling us that he is not sure about the confession of the suspect.
    We will wait and see the end while i weep for Nigeria!!!

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT is the only option. If found guilty, Jungle justice should be applied and there should be no mercy or delay in the dispensation of the justice.

    • ihatenigeria February 21, 2013 at 6:57 pm

      sharap u this almajiri. I dont blame you. you are taking after your stupid and fake prophet who founded a terrorist/militant gang, islam and called it religion.

    Alhaji Dan-azumi Gana, no be only capital punishment, na state, federal or even international punishment if there is any such thing. How many punishment has been given to the Boko Haram suspects caught redhanded in the north have been given any punishment at all?

  13. peter omelazu February 21, 2013 at 11:00 am

    why is it that the yoruba touts association can not change their leadership without shedding blood of the incubent and why is it that the incubent would always want to die on the chair. Is it genetic ?Obj tried to do same with third term.But failed woefully.This is the main security problem in Lagos,Ibadan,sango otta and all the south west states.From adedibu to elewe omo to Tokyo,mushin,Iyana paja,agege,ifo,lafenwa etc.

    @Peter i wonderooo they like to be answering Oloye 4ever, eye service tribalistic set of people.

    message to CP lagos State, Mr Umar Manko. You told nigerian that it was not an explosion but an electical fault. why do u come out with this now. Better be sincere to yourself !!! LIARS

  16. nduka felix mobolaji uzuh February 21, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    This goes to show , how incompitent our npf is. Were they not the ones who told us on the day of the blast, that it was’nt a bomb. Why are they now telling us again today, that it is a bomb. Na waoooo.

  17. flare February 21, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    na wa ooooo. jst bcos of position dis man ws blown 2 pieces.

  18. osy February 21, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Ben Edict,u must mind what u say,which tribe in nija wiser than ibos in every ramification of life? is it by living in a good fortified house or what?becos our truibes does not worship leaders like urs, why should u mentioned ibos do not go to school,even an illiterate ibos is wiser than u and ur generations

  19. Mekus February 21, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Wash, dem no wan tell us the truth, if not make dem give their names.

  20. juleta February 22, 2013 at 7:11 am

    Does it mean boko haram have entered lagos. lord i pray its not true because nigeria is heading to its doom.

  21. Owerri February 22, 2013 at 7:30 am

    The truth is that one confirmed illiterate Igbo man is more wiser than two or three professors in Yoruba land put together. Can any of them prove my analogy wrong? Just look at them, are they not hiding the names of these conspirators? It was simply because they were all Yorubas, had it being that these terrorist were made to be of Igbo origin, they should have captioned the head line differently. They should have named all the individuals including their fathers name, fore fathers name, their kindred/village names, communities/towns names all their grand mothers names inclusive all to paint Ndi Igbos image black. This people are truely nightmare indeed to Nigeria state.

  22. favour 30 February 22, 2013 at 11:14 am

    Why should some people turn a serious matter like this into
    a tribal issue.with inter tribal marriages and churches being a melt down for different tribes we should be thinking right as a people.even though though the so called leaders have being dividing us and Nigeria as an entity is a fake.still on person to person relationship pls let us stop antagonizing our selves since we all are the creations of one God.
