 Terror alert: FCTA calls for calm, assures residents of safety

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has called on residents to remain calm as security agencies are working assiduously to sustain the state of law and order in the nation’s capital.

This comes two days after the U.S. Mission in Nigeria issued a security alert over the risk of terror attacks, especially in the FCT.

In a statement released by the Director, of Information and Communication, FCT, Malam Muhammad Sule, on Tuesday, he assured residents that all necessary arrangements have been made to safeguard lives and property.

”As part of proactive measures, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Malam Muhammad Bello, convened an emergency security meeting where issues concerning the security alert given by some embassies in Abuja, to their citizens were exhaustively discussed and measures are taken to sustain the current state of security and prevent any breach.

”During the meeting, the minister charged the security agencies to do all within their powers to protect FCT residents from being harmed by criminals and other unscrupulous elements.

”We have not authorized the closure of any school; accordingly, the schools that have closed should, therefore, reopen forthwith.”

Sule said that the FCT Minister restated his advice to residents to cooperate at all times with the security agencies by volunteering useful and timely information that would assist in nipping any form of criminality in the bud.

Residents and visitors are hereby urged to go about their legitimate businesses as all the security agencies have been fully mobilised to checkmate any form of intrusion into the FCT.
