The Federal Government has described it as false and untrue, media reports that there are threats of a possible attack on Abuja.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, stated this on Friday when he briefed newsmen on the outcome of the emergency meeting of the National Security Council, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
According to the minister, Abuja is safe and secured from terrorist attacks.
He said, “I’ve given you the outcome of the Security Council meeting, but to your question, there isn’t 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 does not 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,’’ he said.
