The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar officially confirms an attack on his Yola residence suspected members of Boko Haram.

The incident was initially brought to public attention by Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, who posted about it on his Twitter account on Monday 24th of July.

Omokri expressed concern for the safety of the former Vice President and urged the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to thoroughly investigate the matter.

However, in a statement released by his media office on Monday, Atiku confirmed that the police have apprehended four suspects linked to the plot to attack his residence.

The statement reads: “We wish to alert the Nigerian public that at about 9:44 pm on Sunday, 23 July, 2023 a man seeking to confirm the residence of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar in Yola was apprehended at the gate of the residence.

“The man who was apprehended by security operatives at the residence of Atiku Abubakar was later handed over to the police.

“Upon further interrogation by the Police, the suspect identified himself as a 29 year-old Jubrila Mohammed and confessed to being a Boko Haram member from Damboa in Borno State.

“The suspect also informed the Police that he and his colleagues, who were later arrested too, intended to attack organisations associated with Atiku Abubakar and some other sensitive locations in Yola.

“All four suspects have been handed over to military authorities. We commend the police for the work that they continue to do in this particular investigation.

“We further ask that other relevant security agencies remain on top of their brief.”
