Xmas: Plot to bomb Kano uncovered

•We’re on top of situation –Security agencies

From DESMOND MGBOH, Kano

Security authorities in Kano, on Monday, confirmed a plot by terrorists to wreak havoc on the state on Christmas day. They said the plot was with a view to scare Christians from coming out to worship during the Yuletide. Speaking during a press conference held at the 3 Brigade of the Nigeria Army, Bukavu Barracks, Kano, the head of the Joint Security Task Force (JSTF) in the state, Brigadier General Illyasu Abbah, disclosed that it was against the this background that they had embarked on a house to house search in some quarters in the state. Those who briefed newsmen included the State Director, State Security Service (SSS), Mr. Bassey Enteng, Air Commodore Sani Ahmed (Airforce) and the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris. He, however, assured the public that they were on top of the situation.

Hear him: “We have already given this assurance. We had a stakeholders meeting with both the Christians and the religious leaders in the state two days ago. We gave them these assurances. And we are still assuring the people of Kano State that we are going to give them security.”

According to the head of the JSTF in the state, residents of the state had no reason to worry during and after the festive period; rather they should go about their celebrations and normal businesses without fear. They, nevertheless, tasked the members of the public to immediately report to security operatives upon the sighting any (un)attended bag or items wrapped in polythene bags even as they assured that they were on top of the situation.

The security authorities explained that investigations had revealed there was an influx into the state of terrorists trying to escape the pressures being mounted in other JTF theaters of operations. In particular, the security authorities revealed that it was not impossible that some of the members of a terrorist group, who operated in Katsina State recently might have infiltrated Kano State but stressed that, “that is why we have our checkpoints to ensure that any of them that passes through our checkpoints, we would grab him.

“The JTF is also aware of some bad elements who have constituted themselves as property agents specialising in securing houses for rent for terrorists migrating to the city.

The JTF warns property owners to be careful in letting out properties to questionable identities as the destruction of such properties found accommodating terrorists is the only option at the disposal of JTF.” The JTF equally appraised the terrorists attacks on the facilities of two mobile phone networks in the state on Saturday, including the Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), which was dropped by unknown persons at a relaxation centre in the Gagarawa area of Badawa, pointing out that the failed exploits led to no loss of life except the lives of the suicide bombers who plotted the ills.

They thanked residents of the state for their cooperation in the war against terror in the state, saying the successes recorded would not have been attained without their support.

  1. Xmas is good news to all. This is good news however it happened. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given… may this season bring salvation to all, including the Boko Haramers. The Son of God came for all of us. May peace reign all over Naija this Yuletide. God bless JTF

  3. BOKO HARAM AND THEIR SPONSORS CAME TO STEAL, TAKE AWAY AND DESTROY, BUT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST CAME THAT WE MAY HAVE PEACE IN ABUNDANCE. HOSSANA IN THE HIGHEST AND ON EARTH PEACE TO ALL MEN OF GOODWILL.

  4. @Amo. May d unquantifing wraths of Almighty Allah be upon u, may ur life end in KUFUR, May d unending sufferness, punishment be onto u as u are insultg our beloved Prophet- Prophet Muhammad(SAW) and d religion of peace -Islam. Let me tell u nw, ur place in Jahanama(Hellfire) has been arranged, only 4u 2die nd c d reality of ur uncomfortable abode, except if u repent, nd accept Islam. Idiot of no categories.

    • This sounds like the curses of Boko Haram. You have heard everybody cushioned him to withdraw his statements.Today is not the day of hate. Jesus taught us to preach peace and love.And you don’t have to convert to Islam to go to heaven rather you have to be a born again Christain to see the kingdom of God. Think about it seriousely. You can be converted to Christainity like others brother. Time is running fast!!

  5. GOD is great all d time, all d time GOD is great . in d bible book of ll cor.10;4, FOR THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE NOT CANAL, BUT MIGHTY THROUGH GOD TO THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONG HOLDS.

  6. TODAY IS A BLESSED DAY. IT IS NOT A DAY FOR FIRING OF INSULTING MISSILES, FOR TODAY, UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN, THE LORD, JESUS CHRIST, THE SAVIOUR OF THE WHOLE WORLD. EMMANUEL HAS COME TO HIS PEOPLE! THE BOOK OF ISAIAH SAYS THAT THIS LIGHT THAT IS SHONE HAS DISPERSED THE DARKNESS. IT IS BECAUSE OF OUR TRANSGRESSIONS (SINS) THAT GOD IS ALLOWING BOKO HARAM TO KILL US. IF WE, CHRISTIANS SHOULD RETURN TO GOD TODAY AND BEGIN TO LIVE HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS LIVES, NO BOKO HARAM MEMBER WILL BE ABLE TO CUT THE FINGER OF ANY CHRISTIAN IN THIS COUNTRY—–check how the Israelites were protected during the times and lives of kings David, Solomon, Hezekiah, Asa, and Josiah. HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYBODY!

  7. Dangana Daniel on

    Our war is not carnal but against principalities of the ruler of this world devil who does not have and love for humanity, but wish all to become like him. Brothers and sisters hold unto your faith the lord is your strenght happy christmas. Nothing shass separate us with Christ.

  8. Islamic Religion to the best of my knowledge has been hijack by terriorist all over the World. It is on this note that peoples see this Religion(lslamic) as Religion of violence and no regard to human life. Go to middleeast and part of north Africa, there is no peace among them. Tell me in any part of the world that a Christian involve in terriorizing innocent life and places of worship. May the Almigty God thro His Son the Savior to Mankind our Lord Jesus Christ help them.

  9. Amo, Ysf, and Ay the three of u re Biiiiiig disapointment to whatever faith u hold. insult can only come from a poluted heart yle a righteous heart bleses. accept only true and holy message from ur religious teachers compare it to the teachings of the holy book to acertain its truthfulness. but violence against adherents of other religion encouraged whether by the teacher or from the holy book MUST be REJECTED. May God lead us unto true understanding of his ways. MERRY XMASS

  10. @ AY, you made a big fool of yourself. How could you say Islam is a religion of peace yet violence abounds everywhere there’s islam ? Is that not a paradox? Get it right, islam is evil and satanic. The only demonic religion in the entire world that sucks blood. The devil used mohamed to accomplish his wickedness so long as koran backs up jihad and the killings of innocent people. Islam is a religion of violence, charms, amulets and all evils!

  11. Amo n hs lyks,tek note,cos somday u‘ll regret ds 2 d core,mek no mistek abot it,say wat eva rubbsh u cn say,dn‘t hold bck anitn,u‘ll regret evrybid of it,an idiot on xmas day.Merry Xmas 2 all my frends;Patrick,Blaise P,Obi,Martin,Geoffrey,IK,Festus nd so many of dem,nd a spledid new YEAR.

  12. @AY imbecile,ur prophet is indeed a rapist and ur religion is violence,u re cursing ur fellow 9ja for a prophet dat married an older woman 4 her wealth&kill pple 2 acquire their property in d name of stupid religion,i pity u.Omugo omo Esu.

  13. As long as Boko Haram Belongs 2 Islam,the religion to me is garbage.No peaceful religion encourages killing of innocent people.So the founder is a rapist and a carnibal full stop.

  14. granted, islam is a religion of peace, @ least as far as i know, what baffles me is why r d leaders of islam not doing smth, i mean cautioning dose xtremists among dem who have painted deir ‘peaceful’ religion bad?

  15. The average northern moslem see BK fighting 4 their course.What is wrong wit sultan,emirs,iman.sheik nd prominent northerners calling a conference 2 address dis issue.

  16. wel i just want to tel all my fellow xitain brodas to learn wat d bible teach us we should preach peace to dos lost sheeps jesus come to give life an peace u should not 4get islam was form by war an going to end by war jesus is d prnc of peace
