Boko Haram stressed that they have been quiet all these while, adding that they are now now ready to strike at the institution, while they claimed responsibility for last Monday’s attack.
The terrorists who have been fighting in North East Nigeria in the last twelve years said in the letter that they have been in Jos for some time for purposes of planning abduction of students.
We are coming already and we’ll take many people away, many. From today Saturday night you will begin to understand what is happening.”
