Nollywood Actress Hilda Dokubo Arrested over Bomb Scare

Nollywood actress and former Commissioner in the Peter Odili government, Hilda Dokubo, was, Wednesday afternoon arrested at the Port Harcourt International Airport over her


claim that a bomb was planted in an aircraft belonging to Arik Air.She was arrested by security agents in the country for questioning.

 

Dokubo, a passenger in the Lagos-bound aircraft scheduled to take off by 7.30 am, was said to have raised alarm after receiving a text message on her mobile phone allegedly informing her of a bomb inside one of the compartments of the aircraft just as the passengers were settling on their seats.

 

She promptly informed the captain of the plane who quickly ordered for the passengers to disembark.

 

The plane was later searched and nothing was found according to one of the security officers at the airport..

 

Deputy General Manager, Public Affairs of Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, Mr. Victor Arisa, confirmed the incident.

 

He also claimed that Dokubo was only invited to brief security agencies on the information she received  and who she suspected was behind message.

 

Huhuonline.com learnt that immediately the pilot announced a security threat, the passengers scampered with some forgetting their luggage inside the aircraft as they thought it was part of the execution of the threat by the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) which promised to bomb Abuja, Lagos and Niger Delta.

Well done Hilda, it was good you alerted the captain, at least we all agree that prevention is surely better that cure. As for the interrogation,its just a normal security routine,sorry for any inconveniences/embarrassment you may have suffered that day and after. For our security operatives in general.they need to be more proactive in doing their jobs.....

Its normal for a good citizen to raise alarm on something he/she suspects. Thank God nothing happened and Aunty Hilda was just called for questioning.

 

Nigeria is getting better. Lets join hands in building it.

 

Chao!

She would be fine, but it's better she raised the alarm who knows if it was for real it would've been catastrophic. It wasn't her fault she was just passing the information that came to her knowledge via her phone which turns out to be false. Thank you Actress Hilda Dokubo whatever you went through as a result it's a short term to the greater benefit of more than herself.

I pity the poor lady. I have been receiving several alarming text messages and calls too that I wonder what this country is becoming. Our security officials are also ill-equipped to deal with the situation. Their lives too are not secured. May God's Kingdom come and quickly too in fulfillment of Our Lord's Prayer. Amen. Amen and Amen.
