Following a security notice from the US and the UK regarding a potential terror attack in the Federal Capital Territory, the management of the Jabi Lake Mall in Abuja’s Utako neighbourhood has ceased operations.
According to Rosyroyville, Jabi Lake Mall admitted that the threat to security was the reason for their brief closure.
The management stated in a post on the mall’s Instagram account, @jabilakemallnigeria, that the choice was made to protect both the personnel and customers of the business.
The management of the mall stated that it had no intention of interfering with business and further stated that they were discussing the security problem with the appropriate authorities.
Reports heard it that the management who didn’t give any definite resumption date said “To all our valued shoppers, Jabi Lake Mall will be closed today, Thursday, 27 October 2022. This decision has been taken in the overall interest of the safety of all staff and customers of the mall.
“Centre Management is committed to minimizing any disruptions; however, the safety of our staff and shoppers remains our highest priority.
“Management is constantly reviewing the security situation in consultation with relevant security authorities and will inform you when the mall will be re-opened.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused and hope to provide you with a quality shopping experience soon. Thank you,” the post stated.
The development is a sequel to warnings from the US and the UK about a possible terror attack in Abuja, which targets government buildings, worship centres, public places and schools, among others.
Following this development, the US government has authorized the departure of its non-essential employees and their families from Nigeria.
