Defence Headquarters assures FCT residents, adjoining States of safety

The Defence Headquarters has reassured residents of Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory and other adjoining States that the Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies have been on red alert to combat crime and ensure effective surveillance of the FCT and other states across the country.

The Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche said “This is imperative sequel to a purported memorandum from the Nigeria Customs Service warning its staff on a possible attack on the FCT”.

According to him, the Armed Forces of Nigeria working together with other security and response agencies particularly the core intelligence agencies hereby assure the general public that preventive and pre-emptive intelligence are ongoing.

Enenche said “The general public is thus advised to go about their lawful businesses undeterred”.

He noted again that the Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies have assured the general public that the offensives against the common enemies of this Nation would not cease until normalcy is restored in all parts of the country.

However, the general public is equally enjoined to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity accordingly.
