The federal goverment has dispelled the fear generated by the recent United States’ security alert about Nigeria, especially Abuja, saying citizens are not in danger.
The National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Monguno, Said this while briefing State house correspondents after an emergency National Security Council meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
Monguno, who addressed journalists alongside the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufai Abubakar said heightened sense of insecurity in Abuja is false and unfounded.
According to Monguno, the panic, which trailed the US terror alert, was needless as the hype and the sense of insecurity it created were unfounded.
He also said the armed forces, security and intelligence agencies are not relenting in their duty to ensure that every part of the country is safe for all.
