Former Nigerian leader, Muhammadu Buhari escaped death by the whiskers on Wednesday when a bomber in a car exploded into his convoy in the northern Nigerian city of Kaduna.
About 40 people died in the explosion. Both the police and army said they have launched an investigation into the bombing, in which Buhari emerged unscathed from his armoured car.
Since then, there have been various conspiracy theories about the tragic incident. One of them is that General Buhari masterminded the attack on himself.
The purveyor of this theory is former militant leader, Dokubo-Asari.
Asari, who still leads Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, NDPSF, said Buhari plotted to kill many innocent Nigerians in the explosion.
The former President of Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, of the Niger Delta region, who spoke to journalists in Abuja, said Buhari and his group would fail in their conspiracy and desperation to take over power from President Goodluck Jonathan.
Claiming he knew the erstwhile Nigerian leader so well, the former militant leader said Buhari was not known to be driven in a bullet-proof car prior to the incident, alleging that the use of an armoured jeep in his motorcade started recently which confirmed his stand.
Do you agree with Asari Dokubo’s postulation?
