Beware: Boko Haram/ISWAP Terrorists Plotting Massive Attacks In FCT Abuja, Lagos, Kogi, Katsina, Kaduna, Zamfara States, Says Civil Defence Corps

The fangs of terrorists attacks are likely to spread as two separate terrorists’ groups are plotting coordinated attacks on North-West, North Central and South West regions of the country, according to a leaked memo from the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The memo, addressed to all Commands of the NSCDC, dated July 25 and sighted by our correspondent yesterday listed Lagos, Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna and Kogi States as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as targeted places.

The memo was signed by the Deputy Commandant General, Operations, D.D. Mungadi.

“Consequently, the Commandant-General has directed you to scale up deployment in all strategic places, including schools, worship centres and critical national assets in your respective states, to checkmate any possible threats by these criminal elements. Please treat it as urgent,” the memo said.

In the memo, the NSCDC said it had received credible intelligence that Boko Haram and Islamic State for West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists had mobilised their fighters and deployed high calibre weapons like anti-aircraft guns, general purpose machine guns, among others, to attack Katsina State.

However, the spokesperson of the NSCDC, Shola Odumosu, when contacted, told our correspondent that the leaked report did not emanate from Corps.

“There’s no any memo in that regard,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, yesterday asked Abuja residents to cooperate with his officers in the Intelligence Bureau to fortify the FCT against terrorists.

In a statement by the Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the IGP said the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) had been charged to collaborate with residents to ward off the adversaries threatening to bring down the country.

‘’The IGP has ordered for additional deployment of assets to Strategic areas of the FCT while the Force Intelligence Bureau has been charged on robust Intelligence gathering and information sharing amongst other agencies.”
