Security tightens in FCT after the suicide bombings on Friday

The police and the army have increased security in the Federal Capital Territory following Friday night’s suicide bomb attacks by two female suicide bombers suspected to be members of the Boko Haram.
Heavily armed security agents were seen checking vehicles on Abuja-Keffi Road; Airport Road; Asokoro and Wuse areas of the FCT.

The increased deployment of policemen was on the order of the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, that Police Explosives Ordinance Disposal Units be immediately deployed on the scenes.
The IG, in a statement by the Force spokesperson, Olabisi Kolawole, assured Nigerians of security, stating that the
“Force is prepared to do all within its reach to ensure adequate security of lives and property.”
“Following the incidents, the Police High Command ordered an immediate deployment of Police Explosives Ordinance Disposal Units to the scenes to prevent further destructions and ordered massive stop-and-search activities in and around the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.”
