  Huhuonline.com understands that President Jonathan has returned to Abuja, from his trip to Zamfara and Sokoto state without any bomb incident.   A statement from Ima Niboro, Special Adviser to the President, Media and Publicity, said, the president just

returned from Zamfara and Sokoto states . It was successful and incident free, in spite of the bomb threat by "MEND".

'But these threats bring to focus the president's position that no one must hide underneath MEND to perpetrate evil. This even more so since the MEND known to Nigerians has willingly renounced violence'. 

'So which MEND was this? The Zamfara variant? This nonsense must stop, and this is precisely the president's position'.
