The unnamed senior security officer alleged that over 100 suicide bombers might have been deployed in Jos.

He said: “Let me tell you, we are in serious trouble in this state. Do you know that since last Tuesday’s explosion  more than six members of Boko Haram have been caught and arrested from various places within the city.

“All the tension and rumour you are hearing everywhere in town that some people were caught with bomb here and there in Jos are real. Don’t just call them rumour; they are real. We have discovered at least six of them since that Tuesday attack.”

According to report, one Boko Haram agent was apprehended last Friday at Mobile Police barrack, the MOPOL 8 close to the Air Force base Jos and he had confessed that there were at least 100 of them deployed in Jos city to detonate explosives at identified points.

The suspect reportedly claimed that he was heading for the Airforce Hospital to deliver food to a patient on admission. But a security check on the suspect’s car revealed he was carrying explosives and he was immediately apprehended and the explosive disabled.

His arrest came on the heels of threat letters allegedly written by Boko Haram which were received at government establishments in the state capital.

The security source said, “These threat cannot be treated as mere threats, since after the twin bomb blast. Others explosive have been intercepted and the suspect already helping the security agencies on information about their mission in Jos.”

Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Jos, Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Dr. Benjamin Kwashi, yesterday raised the alarm that there are six bombs planted in Jos, the Plateau State capital, that were yet to explode, urging security agencies in Jos to comb and fish out the remaining bombs planted by members of the Boko Haram sect in the city.

“There were twin bomb explosions a few days ago in Jos in which many people were killed. Just yesterday when I was about to come to Minna, another bomb exploded in Jos. We are aware that one of the Boko Haram men arrested by the security has confessed that they planted 10 bombs in the city. We are also aware that one of the bombs has been seen and detonated by the police.

“But where are the remaining six? The Police must urgently search and recover the hidden bombs to save lives and property”, he pleaded.

The Special Task Force (STF) on the Jos crisis revealed yesterday that three people died from the failed suicide attack on a football viewing centre in the city on Saturday night.

During an interview with GoldMyneTV, Seyi was asked if the youths engaging in cyber-crime are influenced by politicians who indulge in the looting of public funds.

Read his words below;

”This thing is long and deep. I don’t stand for the yahoo-yahoo thing. But do you know that yahoo is the reason we don’t have really high amount of cultism?

And this is just my perspective ‘cause when I was in university, I was always harassed by cultists. But then the next thing, there was a flow of yahoo and they all just disappeared.

People that used to slap and want to obtain would now rather give. It is something bad, so overtime we abused it.

Leaders who are supposed to make us see bad in it are doing worse things, stealing more money, and getting away with it. So yahoo boys are like, ‘if he can steal and get away, why can’t I? And I’m not even stealing from Nigeria’.”
