Abuja - The militant group, Boko Haram, is planning to bomb the homes of VIPs, and not the residence of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the VP’s office said.
The clarification came after media reports quoted the presidency’s initial claim that Osinbajo’s home was targeted.
The vice president’s spokesperson, Laolu Akande, said that claim, sourced by journalists from the text of a press briefing after Thursday’s National Economic Council, was a typographical error.

During Osinbajo’s recent tour of Adamawa and Borno states, two suicide bombers had blown themselves up outside a village in Maiduguri while he was in Borno.
The insurgents recently burned down the home of Tukur Buratai, the new chief of army staff, in Buratai, Borno state.
