Heavy shootings have been reported around Ministers Hill & Dantata Bridge in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The source of shooting or number of casualties is yet to be established. Earlier in the day, Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, ordered a beef up of security in the FCT in order to forestall security breach by the terrorists.

Apprehension greeted many parts of Abuja following the invasion of Kuje Prison by Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) on July 5, 2022.
