Boko Haram plotting to attack Abuja and Jos – IGP

The Acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has warned that Boko Haram terrorists are planning an assault on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Jos, the Plateau State capital.

According to a memo sent to both commissioners of police and dated May 19, the IGP said both Muhammad Sani, a Boko Haram commander based in Sambisa Forest, and his deputy, Suleiman, who is based in Lawan Musa Zango, Gashua, Yobe State, will organize the planned attacks.

 The memo reads:

"Intelligence report at the disposal of the Inspector-General of Police has uncovered plans by Boko Haram terrorists to attack major cities in the country, particularly in Jos, Plateau and the FCT, Abuja.

The proposed attacks would be coordinated by the duo of Muhammad Sani, a Boko Haram commander, domiciled in Sambisa Forest and his deputy, Suleiman, hibernating around Lawan Musa Zango, Gashua, Yobe State.

 In light of the above, it is the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you review your security architecture across all critical government infrastructures and police facilities in your jurisdiction with a view to checkmating the dastardly plans of this marauding terrorists.

Accept the assurances of my warmest regards, please.”

The acting IGP’s warning comes only weeks after Niger State Governor Sani Bello said the country’s capital is unsafe because Boko Haram fighters have raised their flag in a town in Niger state which is two hours away from Abuja.
