• Bomb blasts cause tension in major cities
• IG smuggled out through back door

Since Thursday, when bombs rocked Force headquarters, in Abuja, the entire northern Nigeria has been in panic. There are fears that the dreaded Boko Haram, which was responsible for the bombing, may attack other cities.
Sources revealed that the fear for more bombing is founded, as Boko Haram members have vowed to “disgrace the police” for daring to give the group ultimatum to stop its activities. The Abuja bombing came less than 24 hours after the Inspector General of Police Hafiz Ringim, gave assurances that Boko Haram would be history in two weeks if it doesn’t disarm.

Since yesterday, residents of cities, like Kano, Kaduna, Bauchi, Jos, Katsina, Sokoto, Gasua, Kebbi and others have been in fear. Sources revealed that they now avoid public places, like market, social activities and churches, for fear Boko Haram could plant bombs there.

The fear, it was gathered, is heightened by the fact that since this week bombs have been detonated in some parts of Kaduna, including markets.
