Lagos - The Office Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President, has allayed fears he was a target of a bomb attack.
“Investigations have revealed that the story that the vice President is a target for a bomb attack is untrue,” said Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity.

He said there was allegedly a typographical error in the press briefing document circulated to journalists after the six-hour Long National Economic Council Meeting, which Osinbajo presided over. The Secretariat of the National Economic Council (NEC) circulated the statement.
“The Vice president actually said that there were plans that involved scavengers being prepared by insurgents to dump refuse laden with bombs in the houses of VIPs.”
“VIP was erroneously reported as VP,” said Akande.
