Terrorists plotting to attack Lagos, FCT, Kogi, others — NSCDC1 min read
A leaked memo from the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has revealed plans by two separate bandits groups to launch coordinated attacks on North-West, North Central and South West.
The memo, addressed to all commands of the NSCDC, dated July 25 and sighted by Newsband yesterday listed Lagos, Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna and Kogi States as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as targeted places.
The memo was signed by the Deputy Commandant General, Operations, D.D. Mungadi.
“Consequently, the Commandant-General has directed you to scale up deployment in all strategic places, including schools, worship centres and critical national assets in your respective states, to checkmate any possible threats by these criminal elements. Please treat it as urgent,” the memo said.
In the memo, the NSCDC said it had received credible intelligence that Boko Haram and Islamic State for West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists had mobilised their fighters and deployed high calibre weapons like anti-aircraft guns, general purpose machine guns, among others, to attack Katsina State.
