The arrest of Jubrila Mohammed led to further police investigation, which resulted in the apprehension of three other suspects who were allegedly working together to carry out the planned attack. Their intentions extended beyond targeting Atiku’s residence and also included attacking other organizations associated with him and some sensitive locations within Yola.

The swift action taken by the police in apprehending the suspects has been lauded by Atiku Abubakar’s media office. The suspects have now been handed over to military authorities for further investigation and appropriate legal action.

Security agencies in Nigeria have been on high alert due to the persistent threat posed by Boko Haram, an extremist group known for its violent insurgency in the country.
