The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has raised the alarm following intelligence reports that Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists have heightened plots to attack Lagos State, the nation’s capital Abuja, Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna, and Kogi State.

The leaked memo dated July 25 and signed by the Deputy Commandant General DCG Operations, Dauda Danladi Mungadi which was addressed to all state commands of the NSCDC.

According to Vangard reports, “We have received credible intelligence that Boko-Haram and the ISWAP Terrorist groups have mobilised fighters and high calibre weapons particularly Rocket propelled Grenade (RPG) launchers, Anti-Aircraft (AA) guns and General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGS) which they intend to deploy for the offensive in Katsina State.

“In another development, two separate bandits groups are plotting coordinated attacks on North-West, North Central and South West (Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna, Kogi, FCT and Lagos) respectively.

“Consequently the Commandant General has directed you to scale up deployment in all strategic places including Schools, Worship Centres and Critical National Assets in your respective states to checkmate any possible threats by these criminal elements. Please treat it as urgent,” he said.
