President Muhammadu Buhari has formally written to the British Prime minister expressing his heartfelt condolences to the victims and families in Wednesday's terrorist attack in London.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr Fatai Owoseni, on Thursday said there was no bomb planted at the American Embassy in Lagos.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to order the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Kpotun Idris to end the invasion of Amnesty International Office in Abuja.

No fewer than seven persons were killed, and eighteen others injured as suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers attacked two Internally Displaced Persons camp in Borno state, Maiduguri.

Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, on Friday, threatened to attack world leaders while refuting recent claims of attacks by Cameroonian President Paul Biya.

The Nigerian Army has warned that it is a grievous criminal offence for individuals or communities to continue to shield or harbour any known Boko Haram terrorists in their midst.

The army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman gave the warning in a statement on Thursday in Abuja after troops thwarted attempt by the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists to invade and attack Magumeri town.

Usman said the terrorists made the attempt on Wednesday evening to attack the town in Magumeri Local Government Area of Borno, but that the timely invention of troops thwarted the attempt.

Operation Lafiya Dole on clearance operations in the North-East has been raiding suspected hideouts of terrorists, destroying their camps and neutralising them.

“Consequently, we are constrained to state that it is high time for the people to take up the fight and help the Nigerian military and other security agencies to protect them.

“The terrorists must be exposed and their movements promptly reported to the security agencies. The terrorists are inhuman and barbaric, therefore, cannot be trusted to spare anyone in perpetuating their inhuman acts,’’ he said.

“It is imperative that all communities in the North-East, especially Borno, should fully cooperate with the military and the security agencies by exposing Boko Haram terrorists in their respective towns and villages.’’

The army spokesman said preliminary investigation showed that terrorists who attempted to attack Magumeri came from the same community, adding that the terrorists that attacked the village were well known to the people.

He stated that throughout the period of the insurgency, Magumeri was never attacked, adding that the terrorists and their collaborators hibernating in the area were never exposed for “inexplicable reasons.” (NAN)

No fewer than six persons have been killed including four suicide bombers after multiple explosions rocked a village on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has said.

The Abubakar Shekau faction of Boko Haram has released a new video showing a gruesome execution of government spies.

Revered British newspaper, The Economist has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over his 'tyrannical' style of governance, saying he should "leave economic policy to market-friendly Osinbajo"

The British High Commission in Abuja has dismissed reports that former President Goodluck Jonathan rejected the offer by the British Royal Armed Force (RAF) to help rescue the abducted Chibok girls in 2014.
