The Federal Government has assured Nigerians of adequate security despite latest warning of terror attack on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The Governments of Britain and the United States of America have warned their citizens residing or planning to visit Abuja, that terrorist groups were threatening to carry out bomb attacks in the Nigeria’s capital city during the Yuletide.

Segun Adeyemi, Special Adviser to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement said there is no cause for alarm as security measures have been put in place.

“There is no cause for alarm despite the latest travel advisories by some Western countries”.

”We know that the terrorists, who have been massively degraded and put on the run, have been looking for soft targets to attack.

“This is the nature of terrorism all over the world, as can be seen in recent attacks in the UK, France and Egypt, among others.

”That is why the Nigerian security agencies have continued to be on the alert, even if their efforts have been largely unobtrusive so as not to disrupt the daily activities of the citizenry.

”Such efforts are routinely stepped up during religious festivals.

“The Federal Government would continue to take adequate measures to protect the lives and properties of citizens and non-citizens alike.

“The military remains unrelenting in ensuring that the terrorists neither regrouped nor regain the capacity to carry out organized attacks.” he said

The Minister further advised Nigerians to be security conscious and to report suspicious people and objects to security agencies.

”Federal Government’s sensitization campaign on security, with the punchline ‘if you see something, say something,would be stepped up on national radio and television,” the statement said.
