The Inspector–General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba has told Abuja residents to remain calm over the security advisory by the United States of America Embassy over planned terror attacks in the Federal Capital Territory.
He advised Abuja residents not to panic as adequate measures will be taken to prevent the attacks.
The security alert last night in Abuja created panic and tension.
The IGP ordered the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory, heads of tactical squads domiciled in the FCT, and other State Command CPs to restrategise security management within their jurisdictions.
He assured that the Force Headquarters will continually avail them with the required support, logistics, and deployments necessary for providing safety to all and sundry in Nigeria.
A statement on Monday by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said: “The Nigeria Police Force hereby reassures Nigerians and all other residents and visitors in the country that it will effectively review the United States of America Embassy in Abuja’s security advisory which was issued, widely circulated, and published by the media on October 23rd, 2022, indicating an elevated risk of terror attacks in the country, particularly in the capital city of Abuja.
