Christmas Day mastermind arrested, and escaped

Nigerian authorities recently arrested Kabiru Sokoto at a Borno state governor's mansion.  Sokoto is believed to have planned the Christmas Day bombings at five churches in northern Nigeria by the Islamic terror group Boko Haram, according to a report from the Associated Press.

His arrest, however, did not last long; authorities were transferring Sokoto from a police station in Abuja to one in Abaji when they were attacked and Sokoto escaped.
