According to a document from the State Security Service, President Muhammadu Buhari remained away from the Super Eagles’ match against Ghana on Tuesday at the M.K.O. Abiola National Stadium after being alerted of an impending bomb assault.

The document, originally released on Twitter by writer David Hundeyin on March 28, warned of an impending danger blamed on suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, a group the Buhari government has blamed for a variety of security issues in recent months.

“Intelligence available to the Service indicates [sic] an impending attack on the M.K.O Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on March 29, 2022, by members of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) utilizing prime improvised explosive devices.”

“The attack was hatched to target the return world cup qualifiers match between Nigeria and Ghana, aimed at causing maximum casualty and embarrassment to the Government, thereby drawing local and international attention to the secessionist agenda of the dissident group.


“In view of the foregoing coupled with the planned attendance of President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) and other important dignitaries to honour the national team, there is the need for adequate deployment of counter security measures before and during the slated match with a view to preventing, detecting and neutralising the threats,” the memo said.

The president was initially billed to be amongst the audience for the live World Cup qualifier between Nigeria and Ghana in the Nigerian capital.

But on Tuesday, he instead sent a delegation after the stern warning from the DSS.

“He didn’t attend the match in person. He sent a delegation from the presidency. When his name was announced, Nigerians in the stadium booed him,” a spectator at the stadium confirmed to Newsmen.

A spokesman for the SSS did not immediately return a request for comments.

It came as bandits continued their reign of terror on the vast swathes of the country’s northwestern territories.


On Monday night, bandits bombed a train station travelling between Abuja to the central Kaduna city, leaving many killed, wounded and abducted.
