NSCDC raises alarm of terrorists’ attack

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) has raised the alarm that Boko Haram, Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) and bandits are planning to launch an attack on some States in Nigeria.

The alert revealed that the two sects were in possession of sophisticated weapons to be used for targets in Katsina State.

Similarly, other terrorists’ groups are gearing up to hit Abuja, the nation’s capital, and others, including Lagos State.

The NSCDC advised all State commands to protect public places and government facilities across the country.

Deputy Commandant General (DCG) of Operations, DD Mungadi signed the July 24 memo titled “Heightened Plots by Terrorists to Stage Coordinated Attacks in Parts of the Country”

The memo said intelligence shows that Boko-Haram and the ISWAP “have mobilized fighters and high caliber weapons particularly Rocket-propelled Grenade (RPG) launchers, Anti-Aircraft (AA) guns and General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGS)”.
