Fear of Boko Haram comes to Lagos as anti-bomb squad is called to Silverbird

Lagos has finally been hit by the fear of Boko Haram. After that prank call to AIT in which an individual claiming to be a rep of the dreaded Islamic sect threatened to attack Lagos and Abuja in 72 hours, most malls/big buildings in the state are now more security conscious and are thoroughly searching cars and individuals before allowing them into their premises.

They searched me and searched my car this afternoon when I entered the Adeniran Ogunsanya shopping mall. First time that will ever happen, and when I asked them why, they said they got intelligence report that BH was planning to bomb a mall in Lagos.

Meanwhile, an anti-bomb squad was invited to Silverbird Galleria this morning to sweep the building.

They've been searching cars and people at my office since last year ever since we got a Boko Haram threat. So this isn't so new

Linda, you are doing a good job really, BUT dont put Islam when u are mentioning Boko Haram. Just like u cant say "Niger Delta Militants Christian Sect"
It is embarrasing to the religion. No one is free from Boko Haram.

The other day, pastor Coker said in his speech that boko Haram is beyond a religion thing, he talked about xtians who tried to blow up a church in Bauch, and u also posted the news too.

You would be aggravating people's problem in freestanding the menace if u keep putting Islam. thanks for your good job though.

most northern elders say they dont want nigerian to divide, yet they don't want national conference to restructure naija.abeg make dem know that each drop of boom create bigger gap between north and south ,christians and moslems and of course gradual disintegration . Na di TRUTH bi dat.

Hello!! One of the demands by Boko Haram is to make every state in this country follow the sharia law. How does that NOT make dem an Islamic sect?
