Boko Haram attacks police base in Abuja as police launch manhunt

The deadly sect says it has put its house in order for more attacks

Gunmen, early Monday, attacked the headquarters of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in Abuja leading to a shootout for many hours.

The men are believed to be members of the Boko Haram  sect who attempted to free their members being held by the police.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that the attack was repelled by the police. No casualty was reported.

The daring attack came less than 24 hours after suspected Boko Haram members detonated explosives at a church in a major military training compound in Jaji, Kaduna State.

A man, who claimed to be a senior member of the sect told PREMIUM TIMES, Monday, that “we (the group) have put our house in order and Nigerians have not seen anything yet.”

Police Force spokesperson, Frank Mba, could not be reached for comment.

Security operatives have already cordoned the Apo area of Abuja where the attack occured.

A manhunt has already been launched to locate the attackers who security sources believe are still hiding around the vicinity.

The security forces last week declared the leaders of the sect wanted, placing a bounty on them.

      AT THE END ITS A QUESTION OF GIVING UP YOUR PATHETIC LIFE TO ARMED ROBBERS, KIDNAPPERS, POLITICAL ASSASSINS, THE POLICE JTF, CULTISTS OR AN IDEOLOGY OF VIOLENCE AND HATE SUCH AS BOKO HARAM. NOT MUCH OF A CHOICE LEFT FOR NIGERIANS.

    Mmmmh, I thought the information minister reported that the govt is already started dialague with this pathetic souls. Is this the outcome of the dialogue? A little wonder why they are re-launching their attack after GEJ media briefing… Somebody tell me this is not politcal…

  • Paiko

    • Hickey

      Say this again…Iv squealed this to everyone’s hearing for God knows how long…

  • Dan-Hausa

    This is the greatest conspiracy Nigeria has ever witness since GEJ has assumed the mantle of power. I’m begging my fellow Nigerians to lay their hands on a warning by Sheikh Sanusi Khalil on the consequences when this man become the president. They have their agenda of breaking Nigeria. Please I’m begging the president if the country will break let it be in peace.

  • The International communities will not say anything about human beings slaughtered like chicken by these boastful individuals. When the security agencies start dealing with them, they will start shouting human right abuses as if these innocents people bombed has no right.

    Can someone help us. The attacks and bombing have been quiete for some times. Why recent ones barely days after president news CHAT!!! He said ” I can’t dialogue with faceless people” but a couple of weeks ago president spokesman Rueben Abati during press briefing said ” dialogue is on going between FG and Boko Haram through back door not as Nigerians expect”. What are the back door nogotiations. Or whom do Nigerians believe on the Piper(Rueben) or the Payer(GEJ)?
