Abuja Nyanya Bomb Blast: Forensic Experts Identify Bodies of 2 Bombers

Scene of the blast.
Forensic  experts  have successfully established the identities of two men that  participated in  the bombing  of  Nyanya, a satellite community bordering the Federal Capital Territory and Nasarawa State  on  April 14, 2014.

Security sources told Punch in Abuja  on Monday  that the experts   identified  their  bodies  using certain scientific variables, including body tissues. It was learnt that they also identified the third suicide bomber, who managed to escape from the scene before the explosion.
One of the  sources said:

“The third terror suspect has also been positively identified and we are working to arrest him; but the identities of his two accomplices have  been established through forensic analysis. Through the assistance of experts,  we now know those who carried out the attack. Although two of them are dead, we are on the trail of the one who is  alive.”

When contacted on the progress so far made by the team, the  Police spokesman, Frank Mba, said he would speak “at the appropriate time.”
He said:
“As much as we want to give information to the public on the progress of the investigation, I won’t comment on it now because we don’t want to be distracted. We don’t want anything to jeopardise the investigation. I will speak at the appropriate time.”

Meanwhile, 29 victims of the bomb blast are still receiving treatment at hospitals in the  FCT.
It was learnt that 30  others were discharged last Thursday from the National Hospital  and the Maitama District Hospital, Abuja. Their medical bills were, according to the Chief Press Secretary to the FCT minister, Mohammed Sule, all paid for by the FCT Administration.
