Troops are holding a man suspected to be connected with the explosion believed to have been targeted at General Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in which scores of people died.
The young man who was apprehended by military patrol team that swooped on the area immediately after the explosion, had disguised as a woman clad in female garb to exude femininity with a brazier affixed to his chest.
The suspect was arrested while trying to fizzle into a crowd of onlookers when the patrol team arrived the scene.
Youths in the area attempted to mob him while he was being arrested but were restrained by troops who quickly whisked him away in an armoured personnel carrier.
He is currently being interrogated by security agencies in a bid to ascertain his links.
