The ever vigilant men of the Nigerian army have intercepted a suicide bomber who was planning to wreck havoc in Adamawa state.
The young suspect was arrested by soldiers while trying to infiltrate a village in order to carry out his mission. A suicide vest was seen in his possession as he was taken into custody.
This is coming a day after suicide bombers killed more than 60 people at a mosque and a market in Adamawa state in a twin attack bearing the hallmarks of Boko Haram.
The blasts, said to have been carried out by young boys, happened on Tuesday in Mubi, some 200 kilometres (125 miles) from the Adamawa state capital, Yola.
