Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has ordered a beef up of security in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in order to secure Nigeria’s Capital against terrorists.
Residents of Abuja have been living in fear since the invasion of Kuje Prison by the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) on July 5, 2022.
There have been several leaked memos of intelligence agencies on the plots to attack the nation’s capital.
However, the ambush of troops attached to the Presidential Guards Brigade heightened the worry of FCT residents.
