  • The Man

    Don’t believe the story, just a fruitless attempt to exonerate this government from the failed attempt to kill Gen Buhari. Premium Times, am beginning to suspect you as an agent of this government following some funny stories you publish that walk logics on its head

  • Danas Kalu

    Even a stupid person would know how the story would go. Somebody must present to divert people’s mind. If the president is capable of fishing out and arrest a suspect who want to kill Buhari, why can’t he fish out and arrest who is behind Boko Haram? Please ask our president to bring another person to us and leave this innocent boy alone. Stop fooling us with your propaganda.

    He want to give the bomb. He carried bomb from his mother’s house? He want to give to those that were spraying bullets to the convoy? or He want to donate the bomb to the convoy while bullets been sprayed to the convoy? When his group drove off, he started going back to his mother’s house before he was arrested. Nonsense.

    You want to know his link to his group. What of the several links given to you that connected to your party PDP? You killed them and silence the source. Now you need a link. Nonsense.

    Does he have a name? Where is this guy from? Who are his parents? So many questions, the answers may lead us to getting closer to unravelling this canker worm that is eating deep into the fabrics of our very existence. But, can we get the answers?

      my brother the thing tire me–me oooh—arrest upon arrest not a single break through–the man looks more like a mental case-the security personnel should stop deceiving us–and get down to work-this is a disgrace–as for me i will keep on saying it loud and clear –sack dasuki–gusau————–and IGP———–now–they are of no use to the nation–dasuki is misleading the president-clear from what is happening that Azazi was assasssinated by the janjaweeds supporting boko haram in 9ja— to enable them keep keep jonathan in d dark–sack dasuki he is a traitor–that is the man the fulans swore will be able to solve the boko haram issue

    This is Dandaudu not Bokoharam. Instate of them to go to sambisa and arrest th true BH they resort to arresting dandaudus, bcos they are their match.

      Instead (or instate, according to you) of leaving the security agencies to do the job they were trained to do, you are teaching us your roadside intelligence work. So, according to your school of intelligence, when bomb attacks are launched in Kaduna, it is a waste of time to look for the terrorists in Kaduna, eeh? It never really occurred to you that Boko Haram would find the kind of people you referred to here as easy targets to carry their bombs. The trouble with Nigeria: refusal to put the brain God gave them to use.

    This guy is a transvestite, take a close look at his demeanor-I hope the security forces are not hurriedly “rail-roading” an innocent poor person for this crime

    • Tufiakwa

      So, someone of the type you’re describing is incapable of committing a crime or of being a terrorist? Think again my friend.

  • ????

    if the car rammed into the target car, the the real dud probably died with the blast. how is it possible he was found alive in the crime scene alive?
