U.S. raises alarm over planned terror attacks in Abuja

The United States Embassy has raised the alarm over planned terror attacks on Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
As a result of the possible attacks, the embassy said it would cut down on its services in Abuja.
The US intelligence disclosed this information on its website on Sunday where it issued a security alert on the possible terror attacks.
The alert reads: “There is an elevated risk of terror attacks in Nigeria, specifically in Abuja.
“Targets may include, but are not limited to, government buildings, places of worship, schools, markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, athletic gatherings, transport terminals, law enforcement facilities, and international organizations.”
The US Embassy advised Americans living in Nigeria as well as Nigerians at large to avoid all non-essential travel or movement and stay alert.
They were also enjoined to review their security plans and keep their cell phone charged in case of emergency.
The intelligence also advised citizens to carry proper identification of themselves.
Not too long ago, the medium correctional facility on the outskirts of Abuja city in Kuje was attacked by terrorists and hundreds of prisoners set free or escaped.
Though some have been re-arrested, many are still on the run.
The Nigerian government was yet to react to the development.
