Army Shutdown Hotels,Markets In Abuja

The Nigerian Army has said some hotels and markets in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, were shut down because they failed to put in place counter-Improvised, Explosive Devices, IEDs, measures.It would be recalled that in the aftermath of the Banex Plaza bombing, which claimed scores of lives and damaged property, security agencies in the FCT directed business concerns, plazas, markets and shopping centres to put in place measures to counter such attacks.Reacting to the development, Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Olajide Laleye, said: “The Nigerian Army conducted a vulnerability survey of the Federal Capital Territory and asked certain high risk spots to emplace a series of counter-IED measures.“They refused and, as such, they have been shut until they comply. You will notice that Banex and Emab Plazas have complied and are opened. “Hotels, markets, recreation centres and worship places are included.” It will be recalled that some of the shopping plazas and places of business have been shut since last Friday.
