Nigerian police discovered two homemade bombs in a car carrying three suspected members of the Islamist militant group Boko Haram to a political rally March 29, Zakai Adamu, the state assistant police commissioner for Borno state said, AFP reported. When the two locally-made bombs were discovered by police in the boot of the car, the three suspects ran and police opened fire. One suspect was killed, another was wounded, and the third was able to escape, Adamu said. It is believed the suspects were going to detonate the bombs at the campaign rally.

Nigeria: Bomb Plot Thwarted

Nigerian police in the northeastern city of Maiduguri stopped a plot to bomb an opposition party election rally March 29, while gunmen killed five people in separate incidents, Reuters reported. The attacks have been blamed on Nigerian Islamist militant group Boko Haram. According to police, security forces were tipped off about a threat to the All Nigerian People’s Party (ANPP) election rally and were able to arrest some men with explosives meant to disrupt the rally. Three separate shootings, resulting in five dead, occurred as ANPP supporters headed toward a central square for the rally.
