THE authorities of the United Nations (UN) in Nigeria are not ready to be beaten again by suicide bombers as it promptly evacuated its essential service team from a hotel allegedly listed as the next target by terrorists.

Following the August 26, 2011 terror attack on its Abuja office, where 23 officials and non-workers, the UN assembled an essential service team, which temporarily operates from a hotel in Abuja in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). But from Monday, speculations have been rife that the hotel has been targeted for attack by a terror group.

Consequently, the UN hierarchy in Nigeria ordered the team to immediately leave the highbrow hotel.
