What I Saw In Sambisa – Atiku Reveals|| Assassins Rape, Kill Final-Year Student|| Tanker Explosion Rocks Major City

No forest in Sambisa; I’ll handle insecurity scientifically – Atiku
Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has described the Boko Haram insurgency as puzzling, noting that there was no forest in the Sambisa area.

He said this while responding to a question on the security situation in the North East, especially the Boko Haram insurgency in Borno State.

Atiku confessed that he was yet to fully understand what the whole Boko Haram insurgency phenomenon was about because there were several issues involved.
Atiku said, “I still cannot find in Borno State where a man can hide.

“I’ve been to the place called Sambisa. There is no forest there just shrubs above the ground. When you are flying back to Nigeria, you see people moving, I don’t understand.

“When I served in Borno, the then North East, I did not see where any person can hide. Yet, we deployed the Nigerian military which used to be the best, they fought many wars outside.

Tanker explodes, kills one in Ogun
A tanker exploded in Ogun State on Sunday killing one person and injuring another.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said the crash occurred at about 10:30 am on the Sagamu/Ijebu-Ode expressway.

Florence Okpe, the FRSC spokesperson in Ogun, said the accident involved the tanker and two men.

“The crash involved a tanker with no registration number on it. Two persons were involved, both male adults.

“One person was injured and the second person killed,” she said.

According to Okpe, the injured victim had been taken away by “a good Samaritan” before the arrival of FRSC operatives.

“The suspected cause of the lone crash was mechanical deficiency (electrical fault) which resulted in a fire outbreak,” she added.
