Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq, a militant group believed to be linked to al-Qaeda, has claimed responsibility for the attack. The group claimed that the attack was a revenge for the death of a girl, who had gotten under the wheels of a Turkish armored vehicle a day before in Nairab, Idlib province.

Who will save Nigeria from the Central Intelligence Agency?
The so called security situation in Nigeria is similar to Syria…. the CIA is using the same tactics in Nigeria.
The only difference is the Chief of Staff to the Nigerian president is a Central Intelligence Agent. The CIA poisoned the last Chief of staff so that they can install “Professor” Ibrahim Gambari…. this agent has caused so many problems for the president of Nigeria yet the president of Nigeria does not know this.
The Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari is a CIA agent in government… he needs to talk to his CIA handler to find out why his home was attacked.
