A report by Nigerian Tribune indicates that there was a heavy security presence at the National Assembly, on Thursday, April 29, over reports on a possible terrorist attack on public institutions in Abuja.
Legit.ng gathered that the combined security task force involving the Sergeant-at-Arms, Nigeria police, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Security Defence Corps (NSCDC) and Department of State Security (DSS) embarked on stop and search at the major entrance leading into the complex.
The report said that due to the heavy traffic caused by the exercise, senator, members of the House of Representatives, staff and other motorists spend hours to access the complex.
One of the security agents was quoted to have said that there was a security threat signal of a possible attack on the National Assembly.
The newspaper also noted that most of the installed security facilities at the main entrances into the complex are not functional, adding that the security operatives reported manual checks of vehicles and pedestrians coming into the complex.
Legit.ng recalls that Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger state had raised alarm over the presence of Boko Haram insurgents at nearby communities close to the nation’s capital city.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that armed bandits have abducted two students of the Calvary International Ministry, CAPRO, in Barkin Ladi Local government area of Plateau state.
It was reported that the school is a few kilometers away from the Yakubu Gowon International Airport Haipang in the north-central state.
The school was attacked on Wednesday night, April 28 by heavily armed gunmen.
Daudawa abandoned the amnesty offered to him by the Zamfara state government and returned back to the trenches, less than three months after his celebrated repentance.
A security source quoted in the report said Daudawa has relocated to one of the forests, near the border with Katsina state.
