‘Do You Know What They Call Bomb’- Police PRO Queries Those Accusing Force On Down Playing Terror Attack




I Didn't Use Phone While Driving - Police PRO Gives Explanation After Backlash From Nigerians

The Nigeria Police has queried those accusing the force of playing down the bomb threat and advisory issued by the US Embassy.

This comes after police spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a series of tweets on Saturday, dismissed reports that bombs have been planted in strategic places in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), insisting the city is safe.

The tweet read partly: “TERROR THREAT: It is surprising and disheartening to read in the news and on social media that bombs are being planted in every area of the Federal Capital Territory, even from some individuals who are presumed to be peace ambassadors and patriotic agents of national unity in Nigeria.

“I dont think it will do our country any good to continually spread such fearful rumours to further create more panic to citizens and residents of the FCT and Nigeria at large.

“We still reiterate that the Federal Capital Territory is safe and there is no imminent threat, neither is the FCT being saturated with bombs as speculated in the news.”

Reacting to the tweet, some Nigerians took to the comment section to accuse the police spokesman of playing down the bomb threat.

In response, Adejobi replied that the claims alleging that countries were issuing a travel advisory over a possible terror threat in the capital city was an agenda.

He said, “Play down what? You’d better understand the games those who released advisories are playing so that you won’t be confused or brainwashed. We will continue to enjoy peace in this country.

“So, bombs have been planted everywhere in Abuja, yet people still drive and walk and nothing happens? Do you even know what they call bomb? I don’t understand your line of argument on this matter.”

Naija News reports US and United Kingdom Embassies alongside the Canadian and Australian governments had issued travel advisories in the last six days to its citizens asking them to avoid non-essential travels to Abuja over possible terror attacks.
