“They took control of the area for about 30 minutes and kept on shooting before heading towards Kaduna axis of the expressway,” the source said.

Soldiers from Zuma Barracks were said to have rushed to the scene about 20 minutes after the terrorists left and took full control.

A patrol team of policemen also arrived at the place.

The attack comes amid heightened tension in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) over likely terrorist attacks.

Since the invasion of Kuje Prison in the nation’s capital on July 5, there have been security concerns among residents of Abuja.
