Nigerian police have uncovered a plot to bomb the Abuja transport network, they said on Saturday, using suicide bombers and devices concealed in luggage at major bus stations.
Abuja has increasingly been targeted by Islamist group Boko Haram, with three deadly bombings since April, including one in a bus park on its outskirts that killed at least 75 people.
“Credible intelligence … indicates that terrorists have perfected a plot to carry out attacks on the Abuja transport sector … intended to cause panic amongst Abuja residents and visitors,” police spokesman Frank Mba said in a statement.
