The Nigerian Police Force, Lagos Command have said  that the police and other security agencies are prepared for any planned terrorists’ attack on Lagos by Islamic State West Africa Province as well as Boko Haram.

This was according to a response from the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, during a Twitter Space webinar, monitored by Headlinenews.news on Saturday, July 30, 2022.

It was reported that security agencies had got a security report that ISWAP and Boko Haram planned to attack Lagos, Kaduna, Kogi, Katsina and Zamfara states as well as the  Federal Capital Territory.

Meanwhile, suspected terrorists have killed no  fewer than eight soldiers in an attack on officials of the 7 Guards Battalion of the Nigerian Army Presidential Guards Brigade at the nation’s capital, Abuja last week.

Similarly,  on Thursday, July 28, 2022, terrorists reportedly attacked a military checkpoint at Zuma Rock, a border between Niger State and Abuja, the FCT.

The recurring attacks across the country have left Nigerians worried about the safety of their lives, their relatives and property.

Reacting to this, Hundeyin said, “We are working seriously with other security agencies. Many times that I am with the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, the Department of State Services keeps sending intelligence reports to us.”

“All resources are available, from human resources to gadgets. Our equipment has been optimally deployed to ensure that we don’t have any attack in Lagos,” the Police Spokesman said.

He noted that the residents in Lagos also needed to assist the police and other security agencies in providing them with timely information on suspicious movements.

“The people also have a role to play by reporting suspicious movements to security agencies. It’s a collective thing.

“On our part, we are not just ignoring it, we are at alert,” he said.

He noted that the CP was engaging all the Area Commanders and the Divisional Police Officers, among others on the matter.

“Most of us have families, and relatives in Lagos, my parents are in Lagos and I know that if I don’t do my job, it’s not just the people out there that will be affected, we (the police) will be affected by this. We’re all Nigerians and we’re together in this,” he added.
