Construction giant Julius Berger has closed down operations as a result of the security threats in Abuja. The shutdown is coming two days after Jabi Lake Mall halts its operations.
This occurrence is happening regaalthoughice officials had disregarded reports that the FCT was filled with explosive bombs.
A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi reported that the allegations were fake and he had urged Nigerians to disregard them completely.
He had said: “It is shocking and disheartening to read in the news reports and on social media that bombs are being planted in all areas of the FCT. It is even more unfortunate that the reports are from certain persons who are presumed to be peace ambassadors and patriotic agents of national unity in the country.”
Meanwhile, Julius Berger in a statement made available to the press on Saturday, October 29, urged its staff to avoid public premises during the weekend, while highlighting that temporary relocation to other sites might be considered.
The statement had read: “This advice is applicable from, 28.10.2022 in the evening until Monday, 31.10.2022 in the morning.”
“It is still possible to move to other JBN work or residential locations throughout the weekend.”
“Your safety is our main concern.”
