Terrorists Assembling Weapons To Assault Buhari’s State-NSCDC

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has issued a warning about a planned attack against the President’s (ret.) home state of Katsina, as well as Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory.

According to the NSCDC, Boko Haram and Islamic State for West Africa Province terrorists have mobilized their fighters and equipped themselves with dangerous weapons such as anti-aircraft guns and general purpose machine guns, among others, in preparation for the attack on the state from which the country’s president hails.

These were contained in a leaked report addressed to all commands dated July 25 and sighted by our correspondent on Tuesday.

The report titled, “Re: Heightened plots by terrorists to stage coordinated attacks in parts of the country” was signed by the Deputy Commandant General Controller in charge of Operations, DD Mungadi.

It read, “We have received credible intelligence that Boko-Haram and the ISWAP terrorist groups have mobilised fighters and high calibre weapons particularly Rocket-propelled Grenade launchers, Anti-Aircraft guns, and General Purpose Machine Guns which they intend to deploy for the offensive in Katsina State.”

“In another development, two separate bandits groups are plotting coordinated attacks on North-West, North Central and South West (Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna, Kogi, FCT and Lagos respectively).

“Consequently, the Commandant General has directed you to scale up deployment in all strategic places including Schools, Worship Centres, and Critical National Assets in your respective states, to checkmate any possible threats by these criminal elements. Please treat as urgent,” the report added.

When contacted for reactions, the spokesperson of the NSDC, Shola Odumosu, promised to get back to our correspondent but he was yet to do so at the time of filing this report.
