ISIS attack imminent, expert warns

A security expert, Dr. Ona Ekhomu, has warned of an imminent terror attack on the country, asking the Federal Government to take proactive measures in the fight against insurgency.
He advised that the government should enlist the services of citizens in the war against terror to forestall a case of multiple terror attacks like it happened in Paris, France, recently.
Ekhomu, who is the President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria, in a statement on Monday, said recent intelligence intercepts indicated that an ISIS attack on Nigeria was imminent.
He said, “ISIS could use its Nigerian affiliate, Boko Haram, to wreak havoc here in order to signal its capability to carry out worldwide terrorist attacks and add to its stocks of fear.
“Having millions of Nigerians on the lookout for terrorists, reporting suspicious activities to the authorities, is better than 400,000 police and military personnel searching for terrorists.
“With proper enrolment, citizens can become the arrow-head in the search for terrorists as citizens are everywhere. With trained eyes, they can recognise Terrorist Attack Pre-incident Indicators in order to spot suicide bombers, bomb planters and active-shooters.”
He advised the Federal Government to adopt a colour-coded security alert system, adding that the codes could aid mass mobilisation of people to prevent terror attacks.
He said the system would also ensure that residents do not suffer “vigilance-fatigue”.
He said, “The Federal Government can adopt the color-coded National Security Alert System where green means that attack is not likely and red means imminent attack.”
The chartered security expert stressed the need for the establishment of a national three-digit emergency number, saying the multiplicity of security numbers by various security agencies “shows that we are not serious about security”.
He called for the setting up of emergency response centers in all state capitals with voice-logging recorders to enable trained professionals respond to citizens in emergency conditions.
“It is the job of government to keep citizens safe from terrorists. Political leaders need to work hard to ensure that people are kept safe from attacks, rather than the fad of visiting victims of bomb blasts and offering to pay hospital bills. The primary purpose of government is the security and welfare of citizens. Security is a primary responsibility of the modern democratic state,” he added.
He advised government at all levels to be guided by the pro-active and responsible actions of some developed countries in protecting their citizens from ISIS and other terrorist groups.
