The Akwa Ibom State Government said yesterday that there are threats by insurgents to bomb designated markets, churches and public places in the state.

Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah, in a statement, said the threats were contained in “text messages from a terrorist group, Boko Haram threatening the peace and security of the state.”

The Commissioner therefore advised members of the public to be security conscious and be extra vigilant by promptly reporting suspicious movements of strange elements that constitute security threats to security personnel for action.

Umanah however assured all indigenes and residents of the state of their safety as government has already directed security agencies to step up surveillance to tackle the threat as well as ensure the safety and security of lives and property including sensitive and important installations.

In the same vein, Umanah urged all law abiding citizens to go about their legitimate businesses as government was on top of the situation, maintaining that government was poised to sustain the peace and stable environment which made Akwa Ibom a safe haven for visitors, investors and her indigenes.
