Update: ‘VIP’s not VP’s house targeted by Boko Haram’

I can’t help but laugh! It was just a communication blunder. Even You Osibanjo?

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, on Thursday night denied report that the Federal Government has uncovered plans by Boko Haram to bomb the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s house.

He said in a statement that there was typographical error in the talking point circulated to journalists at the end of the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting.

According to him, the aspect of ‘house of the vice president’ in the talking point should have read ‘houses of VIPs’.

The statement reads: “A press briefing note circulated today by the Secretariat of the
National Economic Council, NEC, contains a typo on the very last line of the last paragraph.

“That paragraph should read ‘The Vice President also disclosed that security reports has it that scavengers are now being prepared by insurgents to dump refuse laden with bombs in the houses of VIPs.’

“The last line erroneously says ‘in the house of the Vice President.’ Please take note of the correction.

“The 59th NEC meeting was presided over by the Vice President, Prof.Yemi Osinbajo, earlier Thursday,” It stated.
