Terror Threat: U.S. Soldiers, DSS Raid Abuja Estate As Jabi Lake Mall Shuts Down

Amid heightened tension over likely terrorists attack, American soldiers and operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have raided the Trademore Estate, Lugbe, off the Nnamdi Azikiwe Internal Airport Road in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

This is just as the sprawling Jabi Lake Mall, one of the popular shopping outlets in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has shut down.

At least, five foreign missions, including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland and Canada have raised alarm over a possible terror threat in Nigeria’s capital.

During the raid on the Trademore Estate, movement was fully restricted as security operatives swooped on the suspects who are terrorists loyal to the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP).

In a notice, the management of the estate cautioned residents on the need to be security conscious.

“It’s no longer news that there was a High Powered Sting Operation in Phase 3 this afternoon, culminating in a complete shutdown of our estate. A combination of the American Army and our DSS team were responsible.”

“We are unable to give full details of the reason(s) behind the operation, however, we can confirm that there was an allegation of terrorist activities. It is therefore desperately incumbent on every resident to remain vigilant, KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOURS and report any suspicious movement, person or activities to the Exco, Street Reps and/the Police.

“We will continue to do our utmost best to keep the estate safe for all of us. Everyone is responsible for security and there should be no iota of abdication of this responsibility.

“Finally, let’s remain calm and continue to carry out our daily activities within the parameters of the Law. God bless and protect us all.”

On the closure of the Jabi Lake Mall, the management, in a statement apologised to customers for any inconvenience caused.

“To all our valued shoppers, Jabi Lake Mall will be closed today, Thursday, 27 October 2022. This decision has been taken in the overall interest of the safety of all staff and customers of the mall.

“Centre Management is committed to minimising any disruptions; however, the safety of our staff and shoppers remains our highest priority. Management is constantly reviewing the security situation in consultation with relevant security authorities and will inform you when the mall will be re-opened.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to provide you with a quality shopping experience soon. Thank you.”

Security operatives have stepped up surveillance in FCT and environs to forestall attacks.
