News reports say that airport security officers have nabbed two Brussels Airlines passengers at the Nsimalen airport on Thursday after officers found “potentially explosive” material in their luggage.
According to The Standard Tribune, the arrest came within weeks after customs at the Douala airport removed suspected explosives from a passenger’s luggage as he boarded an Air Maroc flight.Speculations as to whether terrorists are attempting to use Cameroon as a transit abound high. Considering the fact that a bomb exploded on a bridge linking Nigeria to Cameroon, fears have been raised on the terrorist threats.
Police at the Nsimalen airport said they found what they believed to be explosive material in the hand luggage of two unnamed passengers.The men believed to be traveling to the United States via Brussels were prevented from boarding the plane and taken away. Airport rules consider any suspicious behavior or talk that may be considered to potentially endanger a plane as a crime.
