The latest update arrest came as new CCTV footage of evil killer Salman Abedi was released showing him shopping at a convenience store just hours before massacre
A wannabe pilot was today held by anti-terror police probing the Manchester Arena massacre.
A 23-year-old Libyan named locally as Alaedeen Sicri, also known as Ala Zakry, is the 16th person held in connection with last Monday’s suicide bomb attack.
The latest arrest came as new CCTV footage of evil killer Salman Abedi was released showing him shopping at a convenience store just hours before he blasted 22 people to death at a gig.
Sicri is thought to have arrived in Britain around five years ago. He enrolled at a flight school near his flat in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, more than 250 miles from Manchester. He was held in a dramatic early-hours swoop.
Charlie Foss, 22, and his pregnant girlfriend were house-sitting the flat next door when armed police arrived.
He said: “I woke up about one or two after I heard screaming and shouting.”
Sicri, who is said to have struggled to find airline work after qualifying as a pilot, was most recently running a Libyan e-commerce website from his flat.
He stayed with Jennifer Crump, 65, and husband John, 70, for more than three years before moving out to live with his western girlfriend.
Jennifer insisted Sicri never showed any signs of extremism. She said: “Every morning he’d leave looking really smart in his pilot’s uniform.
“He prayed every day, but he was never outwardly religious, there was nothing that rang any alarm bells.
Buhari not a democrat, must be sacked in 2019 – Atiku averred
POLITICS – Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being undemocratic despite coming to power in 2015 through a democratic process.
Atiku stated this on Thursday when he visited Kogi State delegates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He debunked the insinuation that he currently holds grudge against his former boss, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
“I will continue to express my reservations on the willingness of President Buhari to hand over power. I have a simple and straight explanation for this. When Buhari took over power in 1983, they asked him of his transition to civil rule, then he responded, he doesn’t have.
“My stand is that one, he is not a democrat. Secondly, he is only using democracy to go back to power. If he loses election in 2019, he must hand over power” Atiku averred.
NYSC member battling for life after soldier’s assault in Kaduna camp
The corper, set to complete his service next month, had been appointed to the brigade band to train the current corps members. However, at the end of the parade, he excused himself and was planning to leave when a female soldier stopped him and said he couldn’t go.
He allegedly tried to explain to the soldier that he had to leave, as he is not bounded by the camp rules, but the soldier started harassing him. A male soldier later joined his colleague and kicked the corper, who fell and landed awkwardly on his head. The soldier was said to have pulled him up with his belt, raised him high and dropped him, making him faint immediately.
The victim was then rushed to the camp clinic, where preliminary assessment showed that he broke his neck in the process. He was later rushed out of the camp to a clinic and it’s being rumored that he is now between life and death.
