This morning’s gunfight at the Apo Legislative Quarters in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, was launched by members of the Boko Haram terrorist group, the country’s secret police has confirmed. Four people were said to have died in the attack which took place around 2.30 a.m. while six were injured, as earlier reported by News Express.

Clearing the fog that surrounded the incident, spokesperson of the State Security Service (SSS), said in a statement issued in Abuja: “In the early hours of today 20th September, 2013, about 0030 hours, a combined security team went for an operation behind the Apo legislative quarters.

“The operation was sequel to information obtained from two (2) Boko Haram elements Kamal ABDULLAHI and Mohammed ADAMU, who had earlier been arrested for terrorist activities. They led the security team to uncompleted buildings where arms were purported to have been buried underground.

“No sooner had the team commenced digging for the arms, than they came under heavy gunfire attack by other Boko Haram elements within the area, which prompted immediate response from the security team. As a result, some persons were injured and twelve (12) others have been arrested in connection with the incident, and are making useful statements.

“Normalcy has returned to the area. Members of the public are advised to go about their normal businesses, as appropriate security measures have been emplaced to ensure the safety of citizens in the FCT.

“We want to reiterate the need for all Nigerians to be vigilant of their immediate environment and promptly report suspicious activities to security agencies. Our National security must remain the collective responsibility of all Nigerians.”
