Security operatives comprising of the Nigeria Army, DSS, NSCDC, the police and others have been stationed to different locations in the Nation’s capital, FCT following reports of a planned attack by Boko Haram insurgents and bandits.

Security reports obtained by the Nigerian Army recently indicated that attackers were planning to enter the FCT through the Abuja-Keffi expressway to unleash terror in the city center of Abuja.

The troops have been placed on high alert and are deployed to strategic locations where they are mounting security checkpoints to monitor, prevent and arrest any potential attacker.

Motorists, especially those who live along the Abuja-Keffi expressway in areas like Kugbo, Karu, Jokwoyi, Orozo, Karshi, Nyanya, Mararaba, One-man village, Masaka, among other satellite towns, are finding it difficult traversing the road as a result of roadblocks mounted by soldiers .

This comes after the Tuesday morning invasion of the University of Abuja by bandits who abducted some staff members and their families.
