The State Security Service has re-arrested the major suspect of the Christmas Day bombing in Niger State, Kabir Sokoto.

Sources in The Presidency, Abuja told The Eagle Online that Sokoto was apprehended this morning by officers of the SSS.

Sokoto, who escaped from the custody of the police after his initial arrest, is believed to be the mastermind of the bombing of St. Theresa Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State.

He was arrested at the Borno State Government House in Abuja.

However, the police team in charge of his investigation said he escaped when some armed youths attacked them in the process of searching his house.

The development cost the then Inspector General of Police, Hafiz Ringim, his job.

The Commissioner of Police in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Zakari Biu, was also dismissed and is to be prosecuted.

Biu and Sokoto are from the same village, Biu, in Borno State.
