Elections: US warns of Boko Haram/ISIS attacks, military denies knowledge

The United States of America has warned its citizens in Nigeria to be conscious of threats of attacks by members of Boko Haram and ISIS West Africa.

In a statement on its website in Nigeria on Friday, the US said the insurgents had threatened to attack public places.

But the Nigerian military has said it is not aware of any possible threat to the country’s upcoming general elections by Boko Haram and its ISIS collaborators.

Also, the police said they were ready to neutralise all security threats.

The US said although it did not have information on whether such attacks were targeted at its embassy or not, it advised its citizens to review their movements and keep a low profile.
