Boko Haram commanders are planning attacks on Abuja and Jos — IGP

The acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has alerted police commissioners in Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja and Plateau State to a plot by Boko Haram terrorists to attack the areas.

The IGP gave the alert in a circular signed by the Principal Staff Officer to the IGP, Idowu Owohunwa and addressed to the Commissioners on May 19, 2021.

According to the circular, “Intelligence report at the disposal of the Inspector-General of Police has uncovered plans by Boko Haram terrorists to attack major cities in the country, particularly in Jos, Plateau and the FCT, Abuja.


The proposed attacks would be coordinated by the duo of Muhammad Sani, a Boko Haram commander, domiciled in Sambisa Forest and his deputy, Suleiman, hibernating around Lawan Musa Zango, Gashua, Yobe State.

In light of the above, it is the directive of the IGP that you review your security architecture across all critical government infrastructures and police facilities in your jurisdiction with a view to checkmating the dastardly plans of this marauding terrorists.”
