FBI: U.S. Air Marshal Assaulted At Airport In Nigeria! by iamtheprincipal: 8:55am On Sep 09, 2014
(CNN) -- A U.S. air marshal was assaulted with a syringe containing an "unknown substance" at the Lagos, Nigeria, airport on Sunday, according to the FBI, which said it is investigating the incident.
The air marshal flew back to the United States after the attack and "felt fine" the entire 12-hour flight, a U.S. law enforcement official told CNN.
"Out of an abundance of caution, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted an on-scene screening of the victim when United Flight 143 landed in Houston early Monday morning," a statement from the FBI read.
"The victim did not exhibit any signs of illness during the flight and was transported to a hospital upon landing for further testing," the statement said, adding that "none of the testing conducted has indicated a danger to other passengers."
Investigators are looking at whether the air marshal, who did not exchange words with the attacker before the incident, was targeted because he's American. However, there is no concern at this point in the investigation that the attack is part of a bigger threat, according to the source.

A U.S. federal air marshal was attacked in the Lagos, Nigeria, airport on Sunday. The weapon of choice was a syringe filled with a mystery substance. While the incident seems thoroughly terrifying, it is the only one of its kind which has been reported at the moment.

Fox News exclusively obtained an alert issued by TSA in regards to the incident:

The [Air Marshal] reported that the subject stuck him with a syringe and it is believed he was injected with an unknown substance. After consultation with the consulate and physicians, the [Federal Air Marshal] was given precautionary medication."

The air marshal and his team were transported back the United States after Sunday's attack. The air marshal is still being tested and treated for ailments in connection with the injection. The syringe was also transported, so it could be examined here by the FBI and CDC, which are both now investigating the incident.

The CDC, FBI, and State Department have not commented on the syringe incident.

So the suspect was not apprehended abi? or he was allowed to go home and inject another victim later? If a US Air Marshal can be freely accessed and attacked then hmmm...!!!

The earlier report said he had a group of travellers with him.

How will this attack be possible if he wasn't alone ?
