    Boko Haram is not planning to bomb my house-VP Osibanjo



    By Emmanuel Udom
     Laolu Akande, senior special assistant to the vice president on
    media & publicity on Friday denied the media reports on the purported plans by members of the Boko Haram sect to bomb the official resident of Prof Yemi Osibanjo
    Akande in a press statement said that media reports that there was a plan by terrorists to bomb the house of the Vice President is completely false with no iota of truth whatsoever.
    An unendorsed press briefing note circulated today by some officials
    of the National Planning Commission contains a flat-out wrong claim on
    the very last line of the last paragraph.
    That paragraph should read “The Vice President also disclosed that
    security reports has it that scavengers are now being prepared by
    insurgents to dump refuse laden with bombs in the houses of VIPs in
    the Northeast.”
    The last line erroneously says “in the house of the Vice President.”
    During the NEC meeting earlier today, the Vice President had mentioned intelligence reports which suggested that the terrorists have
    recruited people such as "BABA BOOLA” who are known to usually go about picking things from the dust bins.
    The plan is to use the "BABABOOLA" people to plant bombs in houses of VIPs, offices and government installations in the Northeast.
    Please take note of the correction, and ignore such media reports
    claiming plans to bomb the VP’s house. Those reports are unfounded and utterly baseless.
