Taraba Police Commissioner Was Target Of Jalingo Attack; “It Was Suicide Bombing Mission,” He Says

By SaharaReporters, New York

The Taraba State Police Commissioner, Mamman Sule, who was the target of this morning’s attack in Jalingo, the state capital, has confirmed that the bomber was on a suicide bombing mission, holding plastic military explosives on a motorbike.

Although the commissioner did not admit that the suicide bomber was after him, sources have indicated that the commissioner has been on the hit list of the the Boko Haram sect.

The source added that the sect has been targeting Mr. Sule because they hold him responsible for the killing of several of their members during his tenure as the commissioner in Yobe State, which shares boundaries with Borno State, their main enclave.

Also, it was learned that one of Sule’s motorcycle outrider lost his sight in today’s attack.  Two other escorts are in critical condition at the Federal Medical Center in Jalingo.

Mr. Sule said three persons died including the attacker, while about seven were injured.

A security official told SaharaReporters that three corpses were conveyed to the morgue.  A photograph of the suicide bomber with a big gash on his forehead was made available to Saharaeporters.

SULTAN OF SOKOTO, YOU SHOULD

SULTAN OF SOKOTO,

YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR NEIGHBOUR IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE SANCTITY OF LIFE. IN LAW, THE FIRST RIGHT IS THE RIGHT TO LIFE.

WE SHOULD ALL BE CONCERNED. I AM VERY SURE THAT THERE WERE NON-INDEGENES AMONG THE DEAD AT POTISKUM. SO, MY BROTHER WE ARE ALL AFFECTED.

NIGERIA's PROBLEM IS THE ELITE. A POOR MAN IN YOBE, SOKOTO, IBADAN, ENUGU, CALABAR ALL SHARE THE SAME PROBLEM......HOW HE CAN SURVIVE.

A Call for Regional Division

Is no longer news to every right thinking Nigerian that the North want to split and the reason while the president is still pretends as if he did not not know what this people need is annoying ..... Well

@BB Dan

I'm gladly a fool then...i just want you malos to have and enjoy your islam and sharia, but pls I don't want to carry your cross cos we in the south have our own worries as well. Take care of yours how you deem it right for you and let us be. My neighbor should not want me dead because I refuse to let him impose his barbaric way of life on me. Save the vernom for your so called elites, you will be needing it soonest. Does 2015 ring a bell?! Dumb khat chewing bonobo.

I'm loving it

You don't care what happens to your neighbor? That makes you a FOOL!

i'm loving it!

In as much as they are after sule and not emeka or dayo, i just don't care. Like i've always said and will keep saying, let us ALL go our different ways. If and when jaro kills or worships the sultan should not be my cup of tea, just don't want to be disturbed by what's happening in Arewa.
