The raid which took place amid heightened tension over likely terrorist attack in the nation’s capital was carried out alongside operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), Daily Trust reports.

Recall that the United States and the United Kingdom had warned of a possible terror attack in Abuja, especially targeted at government buildings, places of worship and schools, among others.

Also, the governments of Australia, Ireland and Canada also raised alarm over a possible terror threat in Nigeria’s capital.

During the raid on the Trademore Estate, movement was fully restricted as security operatives swooped on the suspects.

In a notice, the management of the estate cautioned residents on the need to be security conscious.

“It’s no longer news that there was a High Powered Sting Operation in Phase 3 this afternoon, culminating in a complete shutdown of our estate. A combination of the American Army and our DSS team were responsible.”

“We are unable to give full details of the reason(s) behind the operation, however, we can confirm that there was an allegation of terrorist activities. It is therefore desperately incumbent on every resident to remain vigilant, KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOURS and report any suspicious movement, person or activities to the Exco, Street Reps and/the Police.
