Former Minister of State, Information and Comm. Ibrahim Nakande Speaks on the Situation in Jos
Bloodshed was averted only in the short run. Apparently unhappy with the turn of events in the military operations, Beroms militants have now resorted to unleashing a reign of terror on innocent citizens in Bukuru town.
Their modus operandi is the firing of RPG – Rocket Propelled Grenade from Gyel village on the outskirts of Bukuru into Bukuru town inhabited mainly by so-called ‘settlers” So far and since morning 6 rockets have been fired. The first rocket fired killed 3 people including a 6 year old boy at an Islamic school. Another rocket landed next to a Police station while one other almost hit a JTF camp site.
Ironically while soldiers are out in evacuated villages in Barikin Ladi/ Riyom looking for terrorists and arms, the real terrorists are right at their doorsteps in the Gyel area of Jos South Local Govt. – Gov. Jang’s local government.
It is instructive that this update be forwarded so that members can share and seek assistance from where ever to save an already bad situation. Because there are strong rumours making the rounds that those behind these bomb attacks are part of the private militia trained by Gov Jang in Isreal, since he stands out very clear as the main proponent of State Police in Nigeria.
