Boko Haram insurgents plan to launch a violent attack in Ondo state particularly commercial banks in order to raise funds for their terrorist operations.
Internal Security operatives in Ondo state have disclosed how the insurgents have laid ambush between Kogi and Ondo state roads, where road users will be robbed and abducted for ransom purposes.
According to Sahara Reporters, a violent robbery attack of a commercial bank will take place in Owo town, Ondo state today. The insurgents specifically chose Owo because it is the local government Area of Rotimi Akeredolu , the sitting Governor of Ondo state.
“The Boko Haram elements are currently somewhere between Kogi and Ondo. They have concluded plans to launch an armed robbery attack on Owo town on November 1, 2019. It’s the state governor’s local council area,” the source told SaharaReporters.
“But there are other planned attacks,” another source disclosed.
“The Boko Haram insurgents planned to kidnap people, carjack along major routes like Owo-Benin axis, Isua Ikare, and Auga-Ayere roads.”
“We have gathered intelligence that these Boko Haram insurgents want to raise more money to execute their terrorist projects.”
The Security sources also said commercial banks are the major target as it seems the terrorists were running out of funds to run their evil operations.
That’s a fact: if they carried out the planned attacks, their focus would be the commercial banks and that’s going to happen any moment from now,” the security agent
