Abuja Boko Haram Attack: Security operatives have been stationed to different locations in the Nation’s capital, FCT following reports of a planned attack by Boko Haram insurgents and bandits.

As at press time, 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 attacker.

Photos on social media show 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.

Motorists, especially those who live along the Abuja-Keffi expressway in areas like Kugbo, Karu, Jokwoyi, Orozo, Karshi, Nyanya, Mararaba, One-man village, Masaka, among other satellite towns, are finding it difficult traversing the road as a result of roadblocks mounted by soldiers .

This comes after the Tuesday morning invasion of the University of Abuja by bandits who abducted some staff members and their families.
