INSECURITY: Another Bomb Hits Jalingo


The Governor Of Taraba State, Ishiaku Darius

Panic As Bomb Explosion Hits Jalingo For The 4th Time. 

An explosive device suspected to be a mini bomb, on Sunday night, exploded in Jalingo, the Taraba state capital.

A residential building and shops were destroyed though, no life was lost, and neither were people injured in the incident a report by Tribune had revealed. 

The device which exploded around the first gate of the Taraba state university at about 9:35 pm is suspected to have been planted by the regrouping members of Boko-haram in Taraba state.

Although Taraba state police command is yet to confirm the development as the command’s public relation officer, DSP Usman Abdullahi could not pick calls to his mobile phone, the police anti-bomb squad were seen at the scene of the incident to avert further occurrence.

The explosion yesterday Sunday September 18 2022 was the fourth in the state in 2022 after governor Darius Ishaku’s earlier alarm that Boko haram terrorists were regrouping in Taraba. 

The Taraba state police command had earlier in June 2022, arrested a 37 years old Bala Usman who is from Kebbi state, a suspected bomber of Nukkai and the military 6 bridged both in Jalingo who also confessed to being a member of Boko-haram terrorists and was behind the earlier two bomb attacks in Jalingo.
