This is imperative sequel to a purported memorandum from the Nigeria Customs Service warning its staff on a possible attack on the Federal Capital Territory. The Armed Forces of Nigeria working together with other security and response agencies particularly the core intelligence agencies hereby assure the public that preventive and preemptive intelligence are ongoing. The public is advised to go about their lawful business undeterred.
