Reports from Jos this evening indicate that about a dozen battle ready soldiers from the Nigerian army were all around the Jos Islamic center and residence of Sheikh Adam Tsoho, the head of Islamic Movement members in Jos, snooping around, perhaps as a prelude to attacking the center.
They masked soldiers arrived in two vehicles, including a Hilux, and took positions without uttering a word to anybody. They are apparently from their headquarters in Abuja.
There were indications that they might have taken photographs as well before withdrawing from the scene.
It was not clear what their mission was, but it might just be the harbinger of an impending attack as they had done in the past and in other places.
The Plateau state capital has had its own fair share of the Saudi-sponsored, Buhari-led pogrom against the Islamic Movement and its leadership, membership and properties since December, 2015.
