    Good journalists always verify before conclusion unless he is pursuing an agenda. Because Boko Haram is the prevalent phenomenon does not mean other criminals cannot strike in these days of hardship and get clean in the name of Boko Haram. Always wait for claims or official police comment to before concluding responsibilty on anybody, unless Premium Times is not out for responsible journalism.
