A former Head of State has been linked with the Boko Haram terrorist organization. The former Nigerian leader who is a notable politician was fingered by the combined team of Nigerian and Foreign Security Agencies investigating the bombing of the United Nation’s house in Abuja as one of the major sponsors of the dastardly incident.
National Daily competent sources disclosed that lead covering the alleged involvement of the top shot in terrorism activities was blown during interrogation of some of the several suspects earlier arrested by the State Security Service (SSS).
“This latest discovery has baffled the Security Agencies who are testing the information for verification. However, if this information is proved to be right, the claim by the Federal Government that big time violence activities in the country are being sponsored by some eminent Nigerians would have been corroborated.”

“As President and Chief Security Officer of the nation, I will employ every means and instruments at my disposal to secure this nation against forces of evil which seek to divide and sabotage our country,” Jonathan said, adding:
“There shall be no sacred cows in our efforts to exposes, contain and defeat this network of terror. I have directed the review of our national security architecture to lay greater emphasis on intelligence and citizens’ participation in security surveillance.”
