Mukhtar, however, said residents have earlier been warned of the attack.

“Prior to their coming, people were informed on so many WhatsApp platforms that there might be an attack around 12:am.

“Our prayer is that May Almighty Allah intervene and look into our condition in Jibia. This attack happens almost on daily basis. It’s not something new.
“Our leaders and sponsors of the insecurity in our country should recall that there will be a day of judgement,” he said.
