The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, described as false and untrue, media reports that there are threats of a possible attack on Abuja by foreign terrorists during this festive season.
Aregbesola made this known when he briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the emergency meeting of the National Security Council, chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari, in Abuja.
According to Aregbesola: “I have given you the outcome of the Security Council meeting, but to your question, there is not any threat to the safety and security of Abuja.
“Abuja is secure and very safe. If there was a leak, as you mentioned, it could just be an operational alert that doesn’t require any worry or concern.
“The Council has mandated us to assure Nigerians of their safety, of their security and enduring peace for the period of the festivities.”
