As the terror alert heightens, the IGP releases emergency phone n


The IGP said in a statement issued by the force’s spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, that the police are working with other security agencies to ensure the safety of all Nigerians.

He stated that officers in charge of commands and tactical formations have been charged with increasing security in their jurisdictions, and that there is no imminent or impending attack on the nation’s capital, as claimed by the US.

The IGP has also ordered that all emergency numbers throughout the country be activated to full capacity in order to provide a prompt response 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


The statement reads in part: “Residents within the FCT are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence and persons to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.”

Meanwhile, some suspected terrorists have been apprehended in Abuja by the Department of State Services, the National Intelligence Agency, the police, and other security agencies.

According to The Punch, the terror suspects were apprehended at their hideouts in Abuja, Mararaba, and other Federal Capital Territory satellite towns.

The suspects were apprehended as fears of a terrorist attack in Abuja grew.

Jabi Lake Mall, a popular shopping mall in Abuja, closed its doors on Thursday due to security concerns.

The FCT Administration has also demolished shanties on Law School land, as part of security measures.
