Failed bomb attack: FCTA sacks security firm

A few days after foiling a plan by a woman alleged to be carrying explosives to bomb an area in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), a private security company, Encouragers Security Company, whose  workers apprehended the suspected bomber, has been sacked by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).
It was gathered that the decision to sack the private security company was taken on Tuesday at an emergency meeting between the administration and representatives of the security agencies in the FCT.
While officials of the FCTA kept mute on the issue, it was learnt that given the recent security challenges in the Federal Capital Territory, especially with the arrest of the woman, the administration has decided to fortify its security, using well-trained personnel.
Another source alleged that Encouragers Security Company Limited was sacked by the FCT Administration because it allowed the public to be aware that a woman attempted to bomb an area in the FCT, thereby causing panic.
It would be recalled that last Friday, a female suicide bomber, suspected to be linked to the dreaded sect, Boko Haram, was apprehended with suspected explosive materials already prepared for detonation at the office complex as she attempted to gain entrance into the complex of the Federal Capital Territory Administration.
The lady, whose name was not disclosed, was apprehended by members of staff of Encouragers Security Company Limited who were later supported by the police.
