This is in order to fortify the nation’s capital against terrorists.

Residents of Abuja have been living in fear since the invasion of Kuje Prison by Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) on July 5, 2022.

Over 800 inmates, including all the Boko Haram suspects in detention were released during the invasion.

There have been several leaked memos of intelligence agencies on the plots to attack the nation’s capital.

However, the ambush of troops attached to the Presidential Guards Brigade heightened the worry of FCT residents.

Daily Trust had reported how a captain and two soldiers were killed by terrorists in the Bwari area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Sunday night

The deceased officers, who were attacked after they visited the Nigeria Law School in Bwari following a distressed call from the authorities of the school.

The school management was said to have alerted that terrorists had dropped a letter indicating an imminent attack.

In a statement on Tuesday, Force spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the IGP had charged the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) to collaborate with residents in order to ward off adversaries.

He added that the force is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that the criminals are brought to their kneels.

”We are not leaving any stone unturned to fortify the Federal Capital Territory and its environs.

”The IGP has ordered for additional deployment of assets to Strategic areas of the FCT while the Force Intelligence Bureau has been charged on robust Intelligence gathering and information sharing amongst other agencies.

”All residents of the FCT are urged to synergise and be on the same page with the Police and other security agencies in making sure that we forestall any ugly incidences in and around the FCT,” the statement read.
