Nigerian citizens have been advised yesterday not to panic over that alert of a likely terror attack on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and elsewhere. Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed said in a statement signed by his Special Adviser Segun Adeyemi: “There is no cause for alarm despite the latest travel advisories by some Western countries.

”We know that the terrorists, who have been massively degraded and put on the run have been looking for soft targets to attack.
“This is the nature of terrorism all over the world, as can be seen in recent attacks in the UK, France and Egypt, among others.
”That is why the Nigerian security agencies have continued to be on the alert, even if their efforts have been largely unobtrusive so as not to disrupt the daily activities of the citizenry.
”Such efforts are routinely stepped up during religious festivals.”

Mohamned said the Federal Government would continue to take adequate measures to protect the lifes and property of citizens and non-citizens alike.
