ABUJA—Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC, and GSM providers, have beefed up security within and around their offices following threat by the fundamentalist Islamic sect, Boko Haram, to attack them.

It would be recalled that the purported spokesman of the dreaded group, Abul Qaqa, in a telephone interview with reporters in Maiduguri recently, said the group felt offended over the service providers and NCC’s collaboration with security agencies to arrest their members.

When Vanguard visited NCC corporate headquarters at Maitama, Abuja, yesterday, armed soldiers were seen at the main entrance with one side of the gate barricaded.

Visitors and junior staff of the commission were thoroughly screened; their belongings scanned and made to park their cars outside the premises.

Similarly, taxis and private vehicles were not permitted to park in front of the gate. Soldiers asked a cab driver, who tried to park in front of the gate, to do frog-jump.
