World wide terrorist, ‘White Widow’ Samantha Lewthwaite, has been linked to the huge terror attack which occurred today in Abuja.
The huge explosion destroyed forty buses and left a sickening trail of death and destruction as fuel tanks on nearby vehicles also exploded amid the heat of the blast.
But while nobody has officially claimed responsibility, security sources, according to reports fear the bombing may have been a revenge attack for the death of Lewthwaite’s mentor two weeks ago – al-Shabaab terror chief Makaburi, aka Sheikh Abubakar Shariff Ahmed.
Lewthwaite, 30, is believed to be in Nigeria, Kenya or Somalia, where Islamist terror networks are closely linked, making it far easier for her to evade detection than in Europe. The daughter of a British Army soldier, she is already on Interpol’s Most Wanted list in connection with seven murders as well as the siege of the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya in September last year which left 67 dead and nearly 200 injured.
She was reportedly caught at a checkpoint in Nigeria just six months ago – but managed to bribe her way to freedom.
She is also believed to have widely used the alias ‘Natalie Webb’ and travelled on a forged South African passport. She has been on the run since January 2012 and is now one of the most wanted international fugitives in the world, officially being hunted by 190 countries!
Local police, however, have linked today’s bombing to the Boko Haram terrorist network.

She was reportedly caught at a checkpoint in Nigeria just six months ago – but managed to bribe her way to freedom. Nigerian police at it again?! I was robbed last year’s October 11 friday night. I reported to 767, I was asked to report to the nearest police station which I did in Makinde police station Oshodi, to a fiery surprise I was asked to pay #5000 for a file to be opened not even for investigations not to talk of securing lives or properties of any Nigerian, what a shameless, irresponsible arm of security. Even Osama Bin Laden must have passed thru this land in like manner. 190 countries in search of 1 woman & was seen here????? Let me ask some questions who identified her & let her escape, are you sure a typical Nigerian police can identify any terrorist moving @ large here? Only for those stupid officers to assault you in respect of traffic offences.
This simply shows we have no police in this country but hungry men in uniform. Very soon they will tell us that they don’t have enough equipment
those stupid police men that caught her nd allow her bribe her way out should b brought 2 book cz our boader is no longer secured.dats d way bombs and all instrument used in carring all ds attack is all smuggled in nd also will bribe their way out.God help nigeria.
