The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has alerted the Commissioners of Police in the Federal Capital Territory and Plateau State to a plot by the Boko Haram terrorist group to launch attacks in Plateau State and the Federal Capital Territory.
The alert was contained in a letter dated May 19, 2021, addressed to the Commissioner of Police in both Plateau State and the FCT.
The letter was signed by the Principal Staff Officer to the Inspector-General of Police, CP Idowu Omohunwa.
It stated that intelligence report at the disposal of the IGP had uncovered plans by the terrorist group to attack Plateau State and the FCT.
“The proposed attacks would be coordinated by the duo of Muhammed Sani, a Boko Haram commander domiciled in Sambisa Forest, and his deputy, Suleiman (fnu) hibernating around Lawan Musa Zango, Gashua, Yobe State,” the letter reads.
Baba, therefore, directed the police chiefs to review their security architecture cross all critical government infrastructure and police facilities in their jurisdiction “with a view to checkmating the dastardly plans of these marauding terrorists.”
