Security operatives on Monday nabbed a yet-to-be-identified man strapped with Person Borne Improvised Explosive Device (SPBIED) inside a bank in Dadin Kowa town in Jos South LGA of Plateau state.

According to reports, Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency publication focused on the Lake Chad region, via his official X (formerly Twitter) handle on Tuesday, said the vigilante security at the bank prevented the attack when they spotted the suspect.

Intelligence sources told Makama that the man planned to detonate the explosives at the bank but was spotted by a vigilante operative who raised the alarm.

The publication said after the suspect was apprehended, an angry mob surrounded him and insisted he should be killed.

It is unclear whether the suspect has ties to any terrorist organization in the country.

Makama further disclosed that the suspect had been taken to the police station for further investigation.
