The eight suspects arrested in Unguwar Ring in Toro Local Government Area of Bauchi State have been transferred to the Police Headquarters in Abuja.
In a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Hassan Mohammed, said the suspects were arrested on Sunday while attempting to blow up the COCIN Church.
He said the case had been transferred to Abuja following an order by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar.
The suspects have been taken to Abuja on the request of the IG, he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the suspects from a faction of members of the Church stormed it, demanding for some documents belonging to the Church, an action which according to the police led to a row.
One of the suspects was found to be in possession of an IED that was similar to the ones used in a recently foiled attack in Kafin Madaki, the Headquarters of Ganjuwa Local Government Area, the police added.
