Babagana Monguno, the National Security Adviser (NSA), has reassured Nigerians that there is no need to be alarmed in light of recent security advisories from the United States and the United Kingdom.
The NSA termed the idea of increased insecurity in Abuja as presented by the UK and the US as misleading and irresponsible, adding that the situation is under control.
At a press conference held on Monday at the State House following a Security Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, Monguno revealed the information.
He claimed that the alarm only applied to residents of the United States and the United Kingdom and that the manner in which it was sent made matters worse.
He emphasized that the alarm had been nothing more than an unneeded diversion up to this point.
Because the security services are in charge and the nation is secure, the NSA recommended Nigerians to go about their daily lives without fear.
General Lucky Irabor, the Chief of Defence Staff, also spoke at the news conference. He reassured Nigerians that there was no need for concern and counseled them to have faith in the ability of the security agencies to uphold law and order.
“I just want to use the opportunity to assure Nigerians that the armed forces, the police, and other security agencies are working round the clock to ensure that lives and property of Nigerians are well protected,” Irabor said.
