Boko Haram attack in Abuja: Security agencies on red alert

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria working together with other security and response agencies particularly the core intelligence agencies hereby assure the general public that preventive and preemptive intelligence are ongoing. The general public is thus advised to go about their lawful businesses undeterred,” a press release from Major General John Enenche, coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Defence headquarters stated on Sunday, September 6.
