Following reports of an impending bandit onslaught, the Nigerian Army has beefed up security in the federal capital territory. According to the Daily Sun news reports, the Nigerian army has received intelligence that robbers and terrorists may strike the capital Abuja. The bandits will enter the FCT using various access points, including the Abuja-Keffi expressway.
As a result of the information received, roadblocks have been placed at key locations to conduct stop and search operations on select specified and suspected cars.
The operation has began on Tuesday night and has already resulted in the arrest of a few people who are already providing information to the security officers.
Motorists have been unable to move freely in the state, particularly in places like Kugbo, Karu, Jokwoyi, Orozo, Karshi, Nyanya, Mararaba, One-man village, Masaka, and others.
Members of the Guards Brigade, who are also responsible for defending the president, his personal family, VIPs, and the FCT and its surrounds, set up the barrier.
Checkpoints have been set up around Abaji, Zuba, and Bwari localities, according to a military officer who asked to remain nameless, to catch suspects before they enter the state.
He went on to say that the kidnapping of several University of Abuja staff members and their families could be linked to the planned attacks.
