Police say they've foiled a plot by a feared radical sect to attack a restive city in Nigeria's northeast ahead of a major Muslim holiday.
Borno state police spokesman Simeon Midenda told journalists Wednesday that the testimony of a man believed to be a member of a radical sect locally known as Boko Haram revealed a bomb attack scheduled for Sunday in Maiduguri.
Sunday falls on the Eid al-Adha holiday, when residents of the predominantly Muslim city are expected to go for prayers.
Boko Haram claimed responsibility for a string of assassinations and bombings in northern Nigeria in its campaign to implement strict Shariah law in Africa's most populous nation.
