Security have been tightened in the Federal capital territory, Abuja, following security reports of a planned attack on the Nigerian capital by bandits and terrorists.
Security reports obtained by the military late Tuesday night indicated that attackers were planning to enter the FCT through the Abuja-Keffi expressway and other entry points.
Troops have been placed on high alert and are deployed to strategic locations where they are mounting security checkpoints to monitor, prevent and arrest any potential attackers.
The soldiers have mounted roadblocks at all entry and exit points into the FCT, and are conducting stop and search operations on specific vehicles and passengers.
It was gathered that the operation, which began midnight Tuesday, is said to have led to the arrest of some suspects who are now assisting the security operatives with useful information.
