We should be informed of any terror alert – Police tell US

ACCORDING to the Inspector General of Police, Alkali Usman, Foreign countries should avoid informing the public about potential terrorist attacks in Nigeria and should instead contact the police directly.

Usman yesterday faulted the United States and the United Kingdom for the public release of such information as he inaugurated a police station and barracks in Ibusa, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State.

The United States and several other nations had advised its citizens and embassy personnel in Abuja to leave the city in anticipation of terrorist strikes during the course of the previous week.

As a result of the alarm, many businesses, including malls, had closed down, heightening panic in the nation’s capital.

However, President, Buhari, the Armed Forces, the Nigerian Police, and the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, have all informed Nigerians that there is no need to be alarmed or panicked.

According to Hidayet Bayraktar, the Turkish Ambassador to Nigeria, Turkish drones and helicopters would soon be arriving in Nigeria as part of measures to bolster the security architecture.
