Based on intelligence reports, the Department of State Services, DSS, alerted Abuja residents of plots by Boko Haram to attack churches, mosques and markets, using girls disguised aid workers as bombers.

In a memo addressed to the National Presidents of Jama’atu Nasril Islam and the Christian Association of Nigeria by the Director of Security Services, Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Ibrahim, he urged religious bodies to put their members on the alert. It also asked residents to report suspicious elements around places of worship to the authorities.

The letter which was also sent to  the FCT Minister, the FCT Permanent Secretary and the acting Secretary, Area Councils Services Secretariat included,

“Intelligence reaching this office revealed that insurgents are planning to attack the Federal Capital Territory. Their main targets are worship centres and markets with the use of young girls as members of aid groups to carry out their planned attacks.

‘It is in view of the foregoing, I am directed to inform you to communicate the content of this letter to all mosques, churches and markets across the FCT for extra vigilance, particularly unknown persons dressing as aid workers loitering around the worship areas and markets’.
