Residents of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, are currently gripped with extreme fear following a report that the nation’s capital is now the target of some terrorist group.
Reports had emerged that terrorists were targeting Nigeria’s capital after a torture video of the abducted train passengers went viral on social media.
In the video, the terrorists had threatened to kidnap top politicians in the nation’s capital, including El-Rufai of Kaduna State and President Muhammadu Buhari.
DSS warning on terrorist invasion
Following the development, the Department of State Security and other intelligence has warned of a likely invasion of the nation’s capital, cautioning residents to be vigilant around their environment.
Recall that only last month, a medium-security prison in Kuje Area Council of Abuja was attacked. No fewer than 300 suspects were set free including top Boko Haram commanders. Although some of the escapees have been recaptured, the majority are still at large.
The terrorists who invaded the media security prison had free time, shooting sporadically without any intervention from security operatives. They operated for nearly 3 hours. Only an officer of the Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, was killed in the attack that led to the escape of many prisoners.
