Atiku Confirms Attack On His Yola Residence By Suspected Boko Haram Members 

Former vice president and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has confirmed that a suspected Boko Haram member had attacked his Yola residence.
On Monday, Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, claimed on Twitter that a terrorist had broken into Atiku’s home.
Omokri asserted that the attack, which took place on Sunday night, was a threat to the former vice president’s life and urged the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to conduct a comprehensive investigation.
On Monday, Atiku’s media office released a statement in which he acknowledged that police had arrested four suspects in connection with the attempted attack on his home.
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.”
