Boko Haram Attack: Nigerian military assures Abuja, Kogi, Nasarawa residents of safety
The Nigerian military has assured residents of Abuja and its environs of safety and protection from any impending attack by the Boko Haram terrorists.
This statement came in response to a controversial memo, “purportedly signed by the Comptroller, Enforcement of the Nigeria Customs Service headquarters, H.A Sabo, disclosing that the terrorist group has camped in five prominent locations in Abuja with plans to unleash terror on residents of the city” – Premium Times reports..
The memo made reference to groups of terrorists regrouping around Abuja, Kogi and Nasarawa, all in North-central Nigeria.
However, officials of the Nigerian Customs Authority have denied such information.
It has been over three years that the terror group carried out any attack on the Nigerian capital as the military and other security agencies continue to battle the insurgents in Northeastern states.
Before 2016, Book Haram had attacked Abuja and Nasarawa with buildings such as the police headquarters and the UN building in Abuja attacked.
