Boko Haram Plans to Bomb AbujaBoko Haram Plans to Bomb Abuja

A man purporting to be a Boko Haram fighter said the militant group plans to bomb Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, in a recent video. “More bombs attacks are on the way, including Abuja that you feel is secured,” said the man in the video obtained by Sahara Reporters, a US-based journalism website, and Nigerian journalist Ahmad Salkida. Nigeria’s state security agency, the Department of State Services, in April said it had thwarted plans by Boko Haram militants linked to the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group to attack the British and US embassies in Abuja. About 82 girls were freed last Saturday in exchange for Boko Haram commanders after being held captive for three years. They were among around 270 kidnapped by the group from the town of Chibok in northeast Nigeria in April 2014.
