300 Boko Haram Attack Maiduguri Day After Junaid Threatens Bloodshed if Jonathan Runs in 2015
A day after Junaid Mohammed, a Northern irredentist threatened that there would be bloodshed in Nigeria if President Jonathan runs in 2015, there has been a massive attack by Boko Haram Islamic militants in Maiduguri, Borno state, in which scores lost their lives.
It would be recalled that Junaid Mohammed in an interview with Sunday Sun had said "Quote me, if Jonathan insists on running, there will be bloodshed and those who feel short-changed may take the warpath and the country may not be the same again. His running will amount to taking about 85 million northerners for a ride and that is half of the country’s total population. So, there will be bloodshed. But we don’t pray to get to that level, before his ethnic and tribal advisers pull him back".
less than 24 hours after Junaid Mohammed spoke, suspected Boko Haram terrorists, Monday morning, attacked the Composite Group Air force Base and other places in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital. Add a comment

There Will Be Bloodshed in 2015 If Jonathan Contest, He Should Leave it For North-Junaid
…Says Jega’s INEC too lousy to guarantee free, fair and credible poll
From: ISMAIL OMIPIDAN, Kaduna
Second Republic member of the House of Representatives and Russian trained Medical Doctor, Junaid Mohammed, has declared that blood would flow on the streets of Nigeria, should President Jonathan insist on running for the presidency in 2015.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Sunday Sun from his base in Kano, the former lawmaker, who chaired the House Committee on International Economic Relations and Socialist Bloc, argued that it was wrong for anyone to suggest that the clamour for power to return to the North in 2015, was coming from the North alone, insisting that there abound more agitators in the South-west, in this regard, than there are in the North, adding that “I can tell you today that there are more agitators in the South-west, for power shift to the North, than there are in the North. And they are doing this because they believe in justice and fairness. If you have faith in a system, you must ensure the system runs fairly and justly too. Apart from the issue of fairness and justice, the South-west knows that it has a lot to lose, should it allow the country to plunge into any political upheaval. Lagos alone, accounts for 45 percent of our national economy, and my friend, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is aware of that notorious fact. So the South-west cannot fold its hands and watch one irresponsible and incompetent leader lead the country into an avoidable political violence. Common sense tells the South-west that it would not be in their interest for this country to convulse again.” Add a comment
