The identities of some terrorists leaders who planned to attack the Nigerian Law School in Abuja and later ambushed some Nigerian Army personnel in Bwari, the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, have been revealed.

The terrorists were led by two banditry kingpins, Kachalla Ali Kawaje and Kachalla Dansadi, Daily Nigerian reports

Kawaje, who controls hundreds of fighters in Kuyambana Forest, which stretches across Zamfara, Kebbi, Kaduna and Niger states, also masterminded the shooting down of a Nigerian Air Force jet on July 18, 2021.

According to security reports, the terrorists had planned to attack the Central Mosque and worship centres and security formations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

In recent times, Nigeria’s capital has been witnessing terror attacks.

Recall that few weeks ago  terrorists who later identified themselves as members of the Islamic State - West African Province (ISWAP) attacked the Kuje Correctional Centre in Abuja, freeing over 900 inmates including 64 Boko Haram suspects and killed 10 inmates and one security officer. 

Intelligence sources also confirmed that the terrorists were planning to plant improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in open manholes around security formations, mosques, churches and public places.

“Central Mosque, Abuja, was particularly targeted for attack,” the source said.

The intelligence source further revealed that the kidnappers and bandits operating within Bwari general area are camping on the mountains and caves behind Usman Dam, linking Ushafa to Mpape satellite communities.

“The terrorists have been mingling with the locals recently. They came on motorcycles from their camps to buy food and drugs in Ushafa and Mpape,” the security source explained.

The source said except serious security measures are taken to forestall the terrorists plans, they may strike any moment.

Parts of the security measures advised during a recent security meeting are immediate replacement of the stolen manhole covers, ban on commercial motorcycles in the FCT and stepping up surveillance on the outskirts of the city.
