The Acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman lkali Baba, has alerted and put officers and men of the Federal Capital Territory and Plateau State Commands on the alert over attack threats by Boko Haram insurgents.
This order was given via a circular dated May 19, 2021 and signed by acting Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, principal staff officer to the IG.
The police boss hinted that intelligence report revealed that terrorists were planning to attack Abuja and Jos.
The circular read: “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 (fnu), 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.”
