ABUJA BOMB BLAST: INVESTIGATIONS BEGIN AS US FORENSIC EXPERTS ARRIVE ABUJA




As the death toll from the bomb blast that hit the Nyanya motor park, Abuja on Monday increases, forensic investigators from the United States of America, have arrived Nigeria to join local security operatives in conducting investigations.

Daily Sun gathered that the forensic investigators are from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). When their correspondent visited the scene, more than 100 heavily armed security agents were seen condoning off the area. The joint team of security agents included the Department of State Service (DSS), the police, army, civil defence and Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).



An unnamed army officer who confided in Daily Sun said the forensic investigators arrived Abuja yesterday morning and were immediately conveyed to the scene of the carnage.

    “Few investigators from the United States arrived Abuja this morning (yesterday) to join us in Nigeria to carry out a forensic investigation on what happened. Many of them are black, so you might not know recognise them. It is a joint operation. That means all the security agencies are involved."

Journalists who were also on ground to follow up on the aftermath of the blast were barred from taking photos or stepping into some sensitive areas. Some journalists who tried to flout their order were almost beaten up by the fierce-looking security agents.
