One killed as gunmen attack Vice President’s house in Zaria

Gunmen on motorbikes attacked the country house of Vice President Namadi Sambo in Zaria in Kaduna state on Monday, but he was not in the building at the time, police said.

“The policemen on guard and the assailants were engaged in a gun battle around 11:30, however, a cobbler was hit by a stray bullet and died instantly,” police spokesman Balteh Abdulrazaq said.

“Two police officers sustained bullet wounds on their legs and arms and have since been rushed to an undisclosed hospital,” he said.

Mr Abdulrazaq said no arrest has been made.

“We have already commenced investigation and we are urging the public to remain calm and report any suspicious activities around them,” he said.
Hundreds of miles northwest of Zaria in the remote city of Sokoto, suicide bombers targeted police stations on Monday.

“Two suicide bombers attacked two police formations in the state capital … as a result three people died that includes the two bombers and a police officer,” Muktar Bello, police spokesman in Sokoto, told Reuters.

Suspected members of Boko Haram killed five people and lost four of their members in a series of gun battles in Nigeria’s second largest city Kano on Sunday.

Security experts believe Boko Haram has many cells operating independently from each other. The sect recruits from the millions of disillusioned youths in the impoverished north, who can be easily coerced into joining the insurgency.

    I think This Boko people are not Nigerians , They have no agender other than to start  war pure and simple ,so that the prediction of those who wish us disintegration in 2015 can come true  .  Theyve tried it with churches and its not working , they tried with mosque, and now to gain attention they want to try it with Govt officials.if this fails they will in their desperate bid to destabilize Nigeria , try same in other parts of the country . Jonathan alone cant stop them , only the very vigilant nigerian people can who are saying NO to insulgency.

       How will vigilant Nigerian people stop them? Guns and bullets are bought with money. Bomb making devices are paid for. The guns and ammunition’s are imported, passing through our borders. Telephones are hacked, emails are tracked, under cover agents are still there. There is a lot for the govt to do so that when the Nigerian people report suspicious activity to them, you know they have the will to act on it.

    I agree with Tony Buela. These Boko Harams are not Nigerians coompletely. Poor Cobbler just died for nothing. This must be connected to 2015 president sit.

     IF THE  GOVERNMENT SAYS THEY CANNOT STOP BOKO HARAM, THEN BOKO HARAM SHOULD CONTINUE KILLING THEM UNTIL THEY COME OUT WITH SOLUTIONS. WE WILL ALL SUPPORT BH IF THEY DONT BOMB THE CHURCHES.

    IF  Vice president and President ARE the next victim of boko haram, solution will come out quickly because the president and the vice know them.
