In case you are not aware

Earlier this week, the United Kingdom and the United States of America alerted its people in Nigeria about the possibility of terrorist attacks in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The United States Department of State permitted the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Nigeria in response to the advisories from both nations.

In response to the warnings, the federal government informed Nigerians via the minister of information that the Nigerian Armed Forces were in control of the nation’s security issues.

The DSS urged Nigerians to maintain their composure, noting that previous warnings of this nature have been issued.

While urging everyone to take the appropriate safety precautions, the DSS stated, “The people is exhorted to be aware and provide security services with relevant information regarding dangers and suspicious criminal activity around them.”
