Security Agencies Uncover Boko Haram’s Plot To Attack Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu, Onitsha And Warri
A plot by the militant Islamic sect, Boko Haram, to extend its operations to the southern part of the country has been uncovered by security agencies.
The sect had chosen some southern cities such as Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu, Onitsha and Warri for attacks. It was learnt that following sustained attacks on the sect’s strongholds in Borno and Yobe states by security agencies, its members had dispersed to other parts of the country.
Security sources said that the group, which had carried out several devastating bombings and gun attacks in Kano that claim over 185 lives, was looking beyond the North in its future terror campaign.
One of the reasons for spreading its operation to the South, it was learnt, was in order not to limit its campaign to an ethnic agenda.
