ABUJA— Security agencies have revealed fresh plans by the Islamic sect, Boko Haram to attack selected high profile targets in the federal capital ahead of this weekend’s independence anniversary.

The SSS claimed that the attacks are coming on the heels of a presidency directive to all security agencies to submit to it documents on their handling of the Boko Haram crisis since 2007. The presidency’s directive was the outcome of outrage that trailed the comments of the leader of the group released by the Police to a sister agency.

Meanwhile, the United Nations in New York has fired its security chiefs in Abuja following the submission to it of the report on the bombing of the UN building in Abuja last August. The United States Federal Bureau of Investigations, FBI which conducted the investigation according to Vanguard sources has also taken over the security of the UN building in Abuja.

The Boko Haram group according to findings by security agencies has conscripted agents to attack selected government institutions and buildings in Abuja between Monday 26th September and October 1st 2011, when Nigeria would be celebrating its 51st independent anniversary.
