The ongoing National Conference in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja was thrown into a state of panic on Monday as a member of the conference revealed that he received a threat message of attack from some unknown terrorists.
The delegate, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), told the conference that he received the message via his telephone threatening an “attack bigger than Nyanya blast” and sought the permission of the Chairman of the confab, Justice Idris Kutigi (retd.), to read the message.
Granted to read the message, Ozekhome read the content which reads, “News got to us that our enemy is planning something bigger than Nyanya blast between Tuesday and Wednesday, in Abuja. Mind your movement and be careful. The date is still unknown. Please, pass it around to save loved ones.”
The reading of the text message caused scare among the delegate especially against the backdrop of an observation made by Obi Onoliefo , a member of the conference last Thursday that the perimeter of the National Judicial Institute, have no security operatives manning them.
Many of the delegates were seeing discussing the development in hushed tones but with panic on their faces.
