Security Forces operating in the nation’s capital have nabbed a man, who specializes in creating panic by sending out text messages threatening attack by Boko Haram insurgents.
The suspect, Ugwu Lawrence, who was tracked by security operatives after dispatching text messages of impending bombings of some hotels in Abuja, confessed to the crime.
According to him, he resorted to the gimmick when the management of one of the organisations failed to offer him employment.
The suspect further confessed that his motive was a ploy to instil fear in the mind of the management’s chairman, and pleaded that he is actually not a terrorist.
The suspect is currently undergoing further interrogation preparatory to prosecution in court.
