Fear grips security formations

RATTLED by the bomb explosion at the Force Headquarters in Abuja yesterday, the various security outfits across the country have put their men on the red alert. They include all police formations, the armed forces and the State Security Service (SSS).

Although, no group had claimed responsibility for the attack at the time of filing this report, it was learnt that the incident has sent shivers down the spines of the top hierarchy of the force in the Niger Delta region.

Investigations in Delta State revealed that extra security measures were being put in place in offices and barracks ostensibly to avert a similar attack.

It was gathered that military personnel and policemen have been cautioned on where they park their cars to avoid militants or extremist gang members from planting explosive devices in them.
