In a terrorist-planned ambush on Sunday, troops serving with the Presidential Guards Brigade were slain.

Following a bandit attack in a nearby town, the administration of Federal Government College, Kwali, requested that parents remove their children from school 24 hours after the occurrence.

Schools in the nation’s capital were likewise to be closed, under orders from the FCTA authorities and the Ministry of Education.

Terrorists vowed to kidnap President Muhammadu Buhari, who presided over a security meeting earlier on Thursday.

The nation was in an “extremely tough situation,” national security adviser Babagana Monguno told newmen after the meeting.


The President, according to Monguno, is aware of the public’s worries about the rising level of insecurity. He also noted that Nigerians were weary and inclining toward self-help.

The President called today’s meeting as a follow-up to the one last week to discuss technical matters and the assignments made to the various security services.

It is accurate to say that the locals lack confidence, are afraid, apprehensive, and worried. That is comprehensible. It becomes quite difficult for the operational elements without their assistance or participation in terms of information sharing.

“Guards Brigade men were ambushed and wiped out a few days ago. We might have been able to prevent that incident if there had been a coordinated effort using simply bits and pieces of information.
