Nigerians on Twitter have reacted to the viral claim that militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda are planning to attack southern and northern parts of the country.
In fact, some unverified sources claim that the United States (US) has alerted the federal government of this grand plot by the terrorists.
The reactions are mixed; while some are indifferent over the news, a section of some media subscribers feel that caution should be taken by the government to thwart the plan.
Another group of Nigerians feel that this is nothing new since they believe the Boko Haram insurgents already terrorising the country are off-shoots of the ISIS itself.
A totally different group of citizens believe that the whole talk about ISIS infiltrating the country is nothing short of fake news.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Shehu of Borno, Abubakar Ibn Umar Garbai Elkanemi, had raised the alarm over the rising attacks by Boko Haram insurgents on the northeastern state.
Elkanemi, who was reacting to the recent attack on the convoy of state governor Prof. Babagana Zulum by the insurgents, lamented that Borno was no longer safe.
The Borno monarch made the statement on Friday, July 31, when he paid a visit to the governor at the Government House in the state capital Maiduguri on the occasion of the Sallah celebrations.
He said: “If the convoy of the whole Chief Security Officer of the state will be attacked, then wallahi, nobody is safe, because he is the number one citizen of the state, he is the Chief Security Officer of the State.
“If a convoy of such highly placed person in the State will be attacked, I repeat, nobody is safe. The matter is getting worse."
