No cause for alarm; Nigeria is safe — Lai Mohammed allays fears of potential terr#rist att@ck in Abuja

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has insisted that Nigeria is safe and there is no cause of alarm.

According to him, the worst is over as far as insecurity is concerned. Mohammed stated this at a Ministerial Session at the ongoing UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Week.

He added that the military and other security agencies were up to the task of protecting Nigerians and non-citizens. The government’s assurance is sequel to a security alert issued Sunday by the Embassy of the United States in Abuja.
The Embassy of the United States had said that there was an elevated risk of terr#r att@cks in Nigeria, specifically in Abuja.

He said, “I can assure all that our military and other security agencies have continued to do everything possible to secure and protect Nigerians and foreigners living in Nigeria. Terr#rists have been hard h#t and put on the run. Bandits have been decimated and sc@ttered. Our country is safer today than at any time in recent times, thanks to the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform.

Nigerians too should continue to be alert but must not panic. Like I said in a recent statement, as far as insecurity is concerned, the worst is over for Nigeria.” Mohammed also said some media outlets and social media personalities were usually caught spreading unverified information on their platforms just for clickbait and the attendant monetary gain.

“Talking of clickbait, this may be what informed the spread of the supposed security alert issued recently by some foreign embassies in Nigeria.”
One would imagine that if indeed this kind of security alert was issued, it was for the attention of citizens of the issuing countries in Nigeria. Suddenly, this alert found its way into the media, both new and traditional, thus creating panic in the polity.”
