independence day :soldiers floods abuja over fear of insurgents attack

Following intelligence reports that some
members of the Boko Haram sect are planning
to cause mayhem in Abuja as Nigeria celebrates
her 54th independence anniversary today,
soldiers from the Guards Brigade of the Nigerian
Army, have taken over the entire security of the
Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
A source was quoted by Daily Sun as revealing
that the mounting of several check-points by
soldiers on the entire entry and exit points into
Abuja, and the creation of new check-points was
staged after reports of criminals and the
terrorists group using alternative routes to get
into Abuja, reached the security agencies.
A walk round some parts of the FCT by DailyPost
shows that soldiers have actually mounted
check-points in some strategic areas within the
city to monitor strange movements of vehicles
and persons in the city.
