Terrorists Planning To Bomb Abuja – UK, US Warn

On December 3, 2017 109 Comments

The UK government has warned its citizens to stay away from crowded places in Nigeria during the Christmas and New Year festivities.

It said there are plans by unnamed insurgent groups to bomb the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

In a travel advisory to its citizens, the UK government listed worship places, malls and markets amongst other places that should be avoided.

“The risk of terrorist attack increases around religious festivals, so will be elevated in the run up to and throughout the Christmas and New Year holiday period,” it read.

“Terrorist groups have threatened to conduct bombings and attacks in the Federal Capital Territory (Abuja) area during this period.

“You should avoid places where crowds gather, including religious gatherings and places of worship, markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, transport hubs and camps for displaced people.”

Similarly, the US embassy in Nigeria has asked its citizens to be security conscious and “remain aware of your surroundings”.

The advisory read: “The US Mission urges all US citizens to exercise caution in and around shopping centers, malls, markets, hotels, places of worship, restaurants, bars, and other places where crowds gather in and around the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), from now through the Christmas and New Year’s holiday season.

“Terrorist groups have threatened to conduct bombings and attacks in this area during this period.”

    I have difficulty believing this writeup. I rather believe in a statement credited to #LaiMohammed. According to Mohammed (2017), Book Haram has been technically defeated. We are waiting for #LaiMohammed to confirm or debunk this grapevine, as the Minister for Information, Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    Terrorist activities happens in US and UK on daily basis and they never see it coming until after the act, they should remove the dirt in their eyes first before helping others, they seems to know everything yet they know nothing, anytime they warn you about evil, mind you and be watchful because they’re planning something on your soil, nothing good can come from US and UK apart from their selfish interest and dominant spirit.

    Who knows how true it is that you reap what you sow, I just went deep into thinking and realized that God’s word must come to pass no matter the pretence of men. Therefore the evil bears must confess return from there old ways of lie’s, release the oppressed if not heaven shall release it’s self upon the sky and fall on them with no mercy and these shall come in no time, cause the wicked is blind to wornin
