The office of the National Security
Adviser, NSA, has issued a security alert on the likelihood of Boko Haram attack on Lagos seaports.

The alert was as a result of the concern expressed by the United States Embassy on the security
situation at the nation’s seaports.

The security alert was signed by Assistant Comptroller General of Customs in charge of
Enforcement and Intelligence, Mr. Dan Ugo, on behalf of the Comptroller General, Col. Hameed Ali (retd).

Following the security alert, the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, has begun the restriction of persons
into its various commands and formations in Lagos.

The development has brought about an increase in the level of security checks at all access points
into the ports.

Meanwhile, the leadership of the Port Facility Security Officer Forum has also warned its members to increase surveillance on their facilities and reduce the number of people into their premises.

Since last week, a long queue of clearing agents had resurfaced at the Nigerian Ports Authority,
NPA, gate where thorough checks were conducted before access is granted.
