The fifth suspect who planned to bomb the malls and informal settlement in South Africa has been apprehended by the Hawks.
The arrested is allegedly a member of the National Christian Resistance Movement (NCRM), a right-wing organisation which proclaimed apartheid ideas and was preparing a series of bomb attacks in the country targeting black people.
The law enforcers did not disclose the identity of the 46-year-old suspect but stated he had been found in possession of a firearm, explosives and explosive devices.
“The suspect is believed to have links with the other four suspects that have already been arrested and charged for alleged terrorist activities,” the Hawks said in a statement.
The arrests of four suspects were made in Kliprivier, Johannesburg, last Friday. During the raid, the officers discovered various firearms and ammunition, documents and other items.
