Terror Attack Alert: FG Assures Of Adequate Security Measures FCT


    The Federal Government has assured of adequate security measures to
    thwart any possible terror attack in the Federal Capital Territory
    (FCT) and elsewhere around the country, saying there is no cause for
    alarm despite the latest travel advisories by some Western countries.

    In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, the Minister of Information
    and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the security agencies have not
    let down their guard, despite the fact that there has been no terror
    attack in the FCT since the Buhari Administration assumed office.

    ”We know that the terrorists, who have been massively degraded and
    put on the run, have been looking for soft targets to attack. This is
    the nature of terrorism all over the world, as can be seen in recent
    attacks in the UK, France and Egypt, among others.

    ”That is why the Nigerian security agencies have continued to be on
    the alert, even if their efforts have been largely unobtrusive so as
    not to disrupt the daily activities of the citizenry,” he said,
    adding: ”Such efforts are routinely stepped up during religious

    Alhaji Mohammed said the Federal Government will continue to take
    adequate measures to protect the lives and
    properties of citizens and non-citizens alike, even as the military
    remains unrelenting in ensuring that the terrorists neither regroup
    nor regain the capacity to carry out organized attacks.

    He said the Federal Government’s sensitization campaign on security,
    with the punchline ”if you see something, say something”, would be
    stepped up on national radio and television, and advised the citizens
    to be security conscious and to report suspicious people and objects
    to the security agencies.
