The headquarters of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation in Abuja was stormed by fully armed security agents from Nigeria’s Army and Police Officers on Tuesday (today) morning.
Officials of the corporation have denied any bomb threat as being insinuated but reports have it that the armed men were present at the corporation as a result of suspicion that a terrorist attack may be launched on the NNPC towers.
The security were said to have arrived around 6am in the morning and have ensured the free-flow of traffic on the road leading to the corporation. Only employees were allowed free entry into the premises while visitors were searched properly before being allowed to get in.
No vehicle was allowed to park at the corporation’s public car park.
