Barely 24 hours after terrorists named President Muhammad Buhari, Malam Nasir Rufai and other government officials as the next targets, the terrorists on Monday struck Abuja and ambushed the Guards Brigade, inflicting serious injuries on the elite security officers. A signal on the attack reads that the Law School in Bwari may be targeted for attack.
