Full Gist on Boko Haram Detainees Vs SSS + Questions Begging for Answers

Detained Boko Haram militants at the headquarters of the State Security Services in Abuja took over the complex for over six hours after disarming SSS agents guarding the facility. *double sigh*

The actions of the Boko Haram militants reportedly led to prolonged negotiations which later resulted to shootings at the complex for over 4 hours.

 The gunfight at the complex known as “Yellow House” caused panic in Abuja as the complex sits close to the Presidential Villa and one of the most fortified area in the national capital. Soldiers and the air force counterparts were drafted in some few hours later to bring the insurrection under control. 

The shootout between security operatives and Boko Haram members which occurred yesterday morning is said to have claimed the lives of 21 militants while 2 SSS officers sustained injuries as detainees reportedly overpowered their guards, shot several operatives and broke down heavy doors at the detention facility to stage a daring escape.

An SSS source told SaharaReporters that the militants succeeded in freeing several inmates and almost taking over the complex before reinforcement came from the Nigerian military. He said the detainees had held the detention facility under a siege for several hours, with security agents negotiating with them to end the tense stand-off. He added that the operatives, aided by soldiers, went on the offensive after the detainees who had obtained weapons had run out of ammunition. He said most of the dead detainees were shot dead as they fled the complex. 

According to the source, four fleeing suspects were shot dead at a park near the facility. 

After the shooting, SSS spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, issued a statement that downplayed the attack, saying it was an attempted jailbreak by detained terrorists. See her statement after the jump............

SSS Confirms 21 Casualties from Attempted Boko Haram Jailbreak in Abuja

The SSS has said 21 casualties were recorded in yesterday’s attempted jail break in Abuja.

In an update late on Sunday, DSS Deputy Director in charge of Public Relations, Marilyn Ogar, said that two service personnel also received serious injuries while three other detainees who received gunshot injuries have also died, she said. 

As usual, she said Investigation into the incident is continuing.

Inmates at the SSS detention facility in Abuja overpowered guards on Sunday and briefly took over the SSS headquarters. Several detainees were freed until the army was called in to quell the insurrection I know this is supposed to be a follow up post of the attempted Boko Haram jailbreak that went down in Abuja yesterday but I was just too tired to write after a really rough weekend so i'm assuming you all know how it went down but if don't, not to worry as i'll give a more detailed post the event much later.

Fire Ravages Scores Of Stalls In Abuja Market

At least 40 stalls across three blocks were damaged after an early-morning fire outbreak at the Garki Model Market in Abuja, resulting in the loss of property estimated at several millions of naira.

According to Manager of the Abuja Market Management Limited (AMML), Mr Ibrahim Yahaya-Joe, the fire began very early in the morning from a cold room, from where it stretched to other cold rooms and then to other parts of the market.
But it was eventually extinguished due to the combined efforts of men of the State House Fire Service, the Federal Fire Service and the FCT Fire Service.

“I received a distress call at exactly 6.02 this morning that there was fire outbreak in one of the shops with a big refrigerator and gas cylinders”, Yahaya-Joe said of the fire. “We used fire extinguishers as an interim measure to curb the outbreak before the arrival of the fire service personnel”.

He praised the fire fighters for their swift response and urged traders in the market to dispose combustible materials such as gas cylinders and other inflammable materials to prevent recurrences.

He also urged them to ensure that they have fire extinguishers in their stalls, in order to aid response operations during future incidents of fire.

Speaking after the fire was put out, Operational Commander of the Federal Fire Service, Abuja, Mr Ime Eyo traced the fire outbreak to a power surge and lamented the loss of property worth millions of naira.
