Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said that the Federal Government would not be stampeded by the terror advisories released by the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom.
Mohammed said Nigeria would not be stampeded by whatever any government decides to tell its people living in Abuja and parts of the country.
He spoke on Wednesday during a briefing after the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Mohammed declared that the US acted within her rights to advise her citizens to go home noting however, that Nigeria won’t be stampeded by such warning or action.
He further said that the government had in the last few months taken a firm handle of security, urging citizens to avoid liking or sharing materials that could incite panic.
The US and Britain had on Sunday warned of possible terror attacks in Abuja, especially at government buildings, places of worship, schools and other centres where large crowds gather.
The US further asked her citizens and Embassy staff in the country’s capital to leave but the Department of States Services urged residents of Abuja and Nigerians in general to remain calm, saying security agencies were right on top of the situation.
