The Federal Government has assured Nigerians of safety and security for everyone in the country.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, gave the assurance in Abuja during a ministerial session at the ongoing UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Week.
The governmentâ€™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 terror attacks in Nigeria, specifically in Abuja.
The Embassy of the United States also said targets may include but are not limited to, government buildings, places of worship, schools, markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, athletic gatherings, transport terminals, law enforcement facilities, and international organizations.
Mohammed however said that Nigeriaâ€™s security forces are doing everything possible to secure and protect Nigerians and foreigners living in the country.
Mohammed also said the military and other security forces have been very proactive in tackling security issues.
â€œI 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.
â€œTerrorists have been hard hit and put on the run. Bandits have been decimated and scattered. Our country is safer today than at any time in recent times, thanks to the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform,â€
