Ogun - The Army says it is on high alert to curb possible terror attacks the Boko Haram sect is planning to carry out in Ogun State, southwest of the country.
Addressing soldiers in Abeokuta, General Officer Commanding 81 division of Nigerian Army, Lagos, Major-General Tamunomieibi Dibi, said the possibility of Boko Haram attack on the state was very likely.
The army leader however assured that the Nigerian Army had what it took to foil the Boko Haram insurgency and its attacks.
He charged the soldiers and other security agencies to be watchful and on the alert every time to crush any attacks.
Dibi urged the military men to be security-conscious and report any security-threatening information to the appropriate quarters for quick and necessary action.
“Security watch and consciousness should be seen as everybody business,” Dibi said.
The army arrested 41 Boko Haram members in the state in January following a raid of notorious areas in the region.
Dibi said the recent arrest pointed to possible attacks by the militant group.
