U.S. bomb experts arrive Abuja

Bomb experts from the United States of America yesterday arrived the federal capital territory to begin investigation into Friday’s bomb explosions at the mammy market at the Mogadishu Cantonment (formerly Sani Abacha Barracks).

The team of forensic specialists, who arrived the cantonment in a space bus with registration number 140CD179, were received by the commander of the Army Garrison Headquarters (AHQG), Major-General Mike Nasanu.

Also on ground to receive the American bomb experts was the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police commissioner, Mr John Haruna, who came with men of the forensic department of the Nigeria Police that would work with the Americans. The American team, which came with different equipment, was seen discussing with their Nigerian counterparts before they moved into the mammy market where the blasts occurred.

Security was tight around the area, which has been condoned off by the military authorities. Visitors and residents of the barracks were subjected to thorough search by soldiers at the gate. Motorists were asked to open their boots, identify themselves and the personnel they were going to visit.

Sunday Sun gathered that the team of experts as well as the officers and soldiers who accompanied them saw human parts that littered the market from the blasts. Shrapnel said to have been used to make of the bombs also littered virtually every part of the market.

A military source told Sunday Sun that some of the human parts at the scene of the incident included legs that were cut off from around the thigh area of victims. He said the legs include those of male and female and other human flesh scattered all over the market, which is beginning to ooze a putrefying odour.
