A report by one of Nigerian dailies indicates that there was a heavy security presence at the National Assembly, on Thursday, April 29, over reports of a possible terrorist attack on public institutions in Abuja.
Leakblast.com gathered that the combined security task force involving the Sergeant-at-Arms, Nigeria police, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Security Defence Corps (NSCDC) and Department of State Security (DSS) embarked on stop and search at the major entrance leading into the complex. The report said that due to the heavy traffic caused by the exercise, senator, members of the House of Representatives, staff and other motorists spend hours to access the complex.
One of the security agents was quoted to have said that there was a security threat signal of a possible attack on the National Assembly. The newspaper also noted that most of the installed security facilities at the main entrances into the complex are not functional, adding that the security operatives reported manual checks of vehicles and pedestrians coming into the complex.
Recall that Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger state had raised alarm over the presence of Boko Haram insurgents at nearby communities close to the nation’s capital city.
