The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on Monday disclosed that it has begun re-strategizing its security management in the Federal Capital Territory to curtail any impeding threat.

Naija News reports that this is coming hours after the United States and United Kingdom warned its citizens in Nigeria against a planned terrorist attack in the nation’s capital.

Reacting, Force spokesperson, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi reassured Nigerians and all other residents and visitors in the country that it will effectively review the US Embassy in Abuja’s security advisory which was issued, widely circulated, and published by the media on October 23rd, 2022.

He said a review of the advisory is necessary due to the fact that Police, as the lead agency in internal security, “will not take any threat intelligence, either actionable or not, for granted; thus, there is no cause for alarm as all hands are on deck to collectively nip threats in the bud.”

The Police spokesperson said: “The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, CFR, has however ordered the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory, heads of tactical squads domiciled in the FCT, and other State Command CPs to restrategize security management within their jurisdictions, as the Force Headquarters will continually avail them with required support, logistics, and deployments necessary for providing safety to all and sundry in Nigeria. While the NPF will continually work with other security agencies to make every part of Nigeria safe, especially the FCT.”
