The Associated Press has learned that a second Nigerian man has been taken into custody aboard a jetliner in Detroit on Sunday after locking himself in the airliner’s bathroom.

A law enforcement official told the AP that the incident took place aboard the same Northwest flight that was attacked on Christmas Day. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the incident was ongoing.

A Delta spokeswoman said all 256 passengers have been safely taken off the plane. Delta operates the Northwest flight.
