The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon E. Arase, following the bomb blasts that occurred in Kuje and Nyanya areas in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, has assured residents and the entire country not to panic as the Nigeria Police Force is prepared to do all within its reach to ensure adequate security of lives and property.
This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday, 3rd October, 2015 by the Force Police Public Relations Officer (FPPRO), acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Olabisi Kolawole.
Arase said those that did these dastardly acts, did so in shame of cowardice, saying no matter their aim, Nigeria will not accommodate terrorists’ acts.
Following the incidents, the Police High Command ordered an immediate deployment of Police Explosives Ordinance Disposal Units to the scenes to prevent further destructions.
Preliminary investigations revealed the bomb blasts were carried out by two suicide bombers – a male and a female. Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police has ordered massive stop-and-search activities in and around the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
