On December 25th, 2009, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian tried to detonate an explosive aboard a Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit in the United States of America. As the son of one of Nigeria’s most prominent businessmen and someone who had access to international travel and a world-class education, his terrorist act took Nigeria by surprise.

Umar has since been sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. However, the FBI has recently revealed the reason why the explosives failed to go off.

During his trial he said the bomb in his underwear was a ‘blessed weapon’ to avenge poorly treated Muslims around the world.

Two FBI agents told WXYZ TV that Umar confessed to the plot, saying that he had worn the explosive underwear for three weeks in order to get used to it and make sure he could get it through security.


“So basically for three weeks he wore this garment, these underwear with this device in it. We think ultimately that is probably what caused the disruption in the sequence of events in the explosion,” said FBI agent Ted Peissig.

The agents also revealed that Umar was not recruited by al Qaeda, but the other way around.

“He sought out al Qaeda relentlessly,” another FBI agent on the case, Mike Connelly said. “He persisted and he was almost turned away at times, you know, by al Qaeda. But he refused to relent.”

FBI agents also say the Underwear Bomber might have inadvertently foiled his own plot because of his obsession about making sure the bomb would not be detected. They further revealed that he had been instructed to detonate the bomb over a populated area to maximize the death toll.

Here is the account of the FBI agents as reported by WXYZ TV

In Abdulmutallab’s mind it was an act of martyrdom and jihad. He had no feelings for the men, women and children around him who were about die, according to the FBI agents.

“He did not bat an eye in saying if that plane was going to go down, it was going to go down. That was God’s call. That wasn’t his call. His responsibility was just to detonate the bomb, and whatever happened, happened,” says agent Connelly.

As the huge jumbo jet carrying over 300 people was approaching Detroit, Abulmutallab disappeared into the restroom to wash himself, a ritual for his passage into the next life. When he returned to his seat he told the guy sitting next to him that he wasn’t feeling well.

“And pulled a blanket almost completely concealing himself up to the chin,” says Agent Peissig.

Using a plastic syringe, Abdulmutallab injected a mixture of liquids and solids into the explosive chemicals already packed into his underwear.

But Instead of exploding, the bomb burst into flames, setting his clothes and the blanket on fire, seriously burning him.

The two agents who visited Nigeria during the course of his investigation said they extracted detailed and chilling information about Abdulmutallab and his mission, getting a rare glimpse into the mind of a suicide bomber.

“In his tone, his conversation, he’s very reserved,” adds agent Connelly. “He’s deliberate in his speech.”

“The witnesses remarked about how he just looked like a simple young school boy,” says Peissig.

But appearances don’t match reality in the case of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Agents say he was an extreme fanatic and a very dangerous man.

He was hell-bent on taking down a jumbo jet over Detroit with no consideration for the hundreds who would die in the plane and on the ground.

“He is completely different from any terrorist that I’ve had the ability to talk to,” explains Connelly. “Different because of his absolute devotion to Jihad. The degree of conviction that he had to the cause is unparalleled.”

We are glad his attempt to kill innocent people was foiled.

  1. May he rot in jail, unrepentant, devilish and diabolical jihadist who has perpetually sown his life to the devil. Brainwashed and indoctrinated fanatic of a religion that promotes violence and global terrorism.

  2. Can u imagine the range of Devil this muslims have inside of them, Abdul Mutalib the innocent boy have been brainwash by Devil through Islamic devilish religion, this is obvious that the Killing of Christians in the North by Boko-Haram is purely islamic, we need to wipe them Out on the surface the earth, the Bastards still perform ablution as mandate by the devilish Quran, Devil have succeeded in his master plan to use Mohammed to convey lots of people to Hell by using a demolic religion called Islam, I just pray that their eyes (muslims) are opened before it is too late because Hell is Real, most times u don’t need to argue With them because they are under bondage of Satan, may God help them.

  3. @Bello are u stupid or just being retarted.You want God to set a wanna be killer free.Nobody or diety can set dat young bastard free he deserves to rot in jail.And for u Bello if you don’t know wat to comment I guess you keep shut and hide your stupidity.

  5. So dis Muslim boy is still alife? Why life in imprisonment ? Why not firing squad .but I thank God sha say dis boy isnot imprisioned in naija his father wouldve pressed button and before u know it he wiill be released but there in america no more for him! So Allah no get strength to fight his battle dats why ordinary human being a small boy is fighting for him? Nawaha oh ! What kind of religion is dis .even d deity my forefathers worshipped can’t send a boy to fight for them not to talk of almighty God.God send down somebdy to open dis Muslims eyes to see d truth .let them know dat u alone has d right to create life and take life .I keep asking dis question why is it dat no Christian group has been tagged terrorists group by any international community?

  6. I rember dat time when dis incident happend America told nigeria that there are others like dis boy undergoing training but instead of nigeria making use of dis infor ,they pushed it one side and said all sorts of thing to Americans but today what are we seeing?no be boko pple we dey suffer now.are they different from dis boy ? Nigerians learn to make use of informAtion no matter how stupid or unrealistic it may be .

  7. u can insult muslims and the Holy Qur’an. Allah himself is suffice to deal with u. It is nt a surprise that u insult Qur’an, since u had always inserted the book sent to u beneath your handpits, u read but do nt follow and has also change it to ur suit. How on earth will u then show respect to other books sent?

  8. like earlier said Allah know what is covered. If truly he has committed the crime laid against him, indeed he has committed a very great and serious sin before ALLAH Himself and Prophet Muhammad cleary said that. No wise muslim nor person wil praise such unGodly act this is wrong, i mean, the comment people made based on the third-hand information placed on net it may be right or alittle fabricated, can’t u see or undertand how things operate around the world ”people, government, corporate bodies, political and economy interested people etc” do take the advantage of act like these to achieve their self motives. I am not proud of his act but whatever comment, or contribution u are putting on in sensitive situations like this should be sensible. I am proud to be a muslim inadina indalahi li islam

  9. no offense in any way but let tak a luk @ films like 24hour, prison break, conspire etc although they films but dey also try to expose and pass message to d public then many things or circumstances can happen.

  10. It is really funny, pple can b dis gulible. Bliv I v not said wat he did his right. But pple’s outrage based on info we don’t know hw true it is, is rily pathetic

  11. Why muslims are tag ‘terrorist‘? pls which religion on art has the following punishment on earth..
    1-law of eqaulity: if you kill life you will be killed, if punched ones eye your eye should be punched……
    2-law of fornication: un married both should be flogged, the married ones should be stoned to death.
    3-law of stealing: thief hand should be cut off.
    4-Law of Alcoholic drinks:that they should be flogge eighty lashes in public
    5-law of false withness:that if a person comes to you with a news let him produce four pious witness or should be flogged eighty lashes in public
    With this five laws out of thousands, iam not dubious that any government that have them as their constitution peace and justice will be maintain in that community
