Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Nigeria's defence minister, Major General Bashir Salihi Magashi (Rtd), sent an important message to Christians ahead of Christmas celebrations.

Magashi called on Christians as they celebrate the birth of Christ to pray for Nigeria to overcome its security challenges.

The defence minister who gave the charge in a statement on Thursday, December 24, noted that the least appreciation Nigerians can show to the soldiers who are fighting patriotically on the frontlines is to pray for them and be security conscious at this time.

In a related development, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu has ordered 24/7 water-tight security arrangement across the country as Nigerians prepare to celebrate Christmas and New Year.
