IGP: Boko Haram Is Planning To Attack Major Cities In Nigeria.
Boko Haram terrorists are planning an attack on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, and Jos, the Plateau State capital, according to the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba.
Report has it that the Police boss issued a red alert to the police commissioners in both cities saying that intelligence reports indicated that the terrorists are planning ahead.
The expected attacks will be organized by Muhammad Sani, a Boko Haram commander based in Sambisa Forest, and his deputy, Suleiman, who is based in Lawan Musa Zango, Gashua, Yobe State, according to a memo sent to both commissioners of police on May 19.
The IGP directed the CPs to review their security infrastructure and strengthen security around government facilities in Abuja and Jos.
Read the memo below:
“Intelligence report at the disposal of the Inspector-General of Police has uncovered plans by Boko Haram terrorists to attack major cities in the country, particularly in Jos, Plateau and the FCT, Abuja.
The proposed attacks would be coordinated by the duo of Muhammad Sani, a Boko Haram commander, domiciled in Sambisa Forest and his deputy, Suleiman, hibernating around Lawan Musa Zango, Gashua, Yobe State.
In light of the above, it is the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you review your security architecture across all critical government infrastructures and police facilities in your jurisdiction with a view to checkmating the dastardly plans of these marauding terrorists.
Accept the assurances of my warmest regards, please.”
