A fraction of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), and Ansaru terrorists have moved from their base to new locations around the Karshi Hills, Abuja, putting fears of attacks on schools and residents.

According to Global Upfront News, this is coming amid the Kuje prison attack, and the release of 69 members of the terrorist group.

Sources said that intelligence received in the first week of July, indicated the influx of unknown persons over time around the Karshi Hills and they clandestinely go up the hills to observe the surrounding, especially around the Navy Town Estate.

Their movements and activities, the source noted, “is raising high suspicion that the invaders are massing up in camps within the hills which also connect to other adjoining forests within the FCT and Nassarawa State.”

This has raised fears of the terrorists attacking educational facilities and residential estates, thus putting the Federal Science and Technical College, Orozo; Nigerian Navy Estate Karshi; Government Secondary School Karshi, and University of Abuja students’ hostel along Giri road at risk.

Other areas around the Karshi Hills feared at risk of terrorists’ attacks include Karshi Water Falls and General Hills behind (West) of Navy Estate to Karshi Water Fall and environs.

People have been living generally in fear as have received text messages about possible attacks on the schools and estates around the area.

However, security has been beefed up in their estates and the surrounding areas with thorough searches conducted on vehicles, tricycles and visitors.

Also, the military are being deployed in and around the FCT while operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have been patrolling the villages of Abuja on motor bikes and carrying out surveillance in virtually all the communities in the FCT.
