There are fears of attacks in Lagos following reports of the influx of scores of men dressed in military uniform.
A photo shared on social media on Tuesday showed the men in army uniform arriving Lagos on a luxury bus.
“What is happening in Nigeria? 2 luxury buses and HIACE buses filled with soldiers just entered Lagos. They just passed Ojota now,” @yemi4tweet, who shared the photo, posted on Twitter raising concerns over the movement.
Several commenters pointed out that soldiers don’t travel in large numbers via public transport.
Others voiced concern about a possible plot to attack Lagos with “unknown gunmen,” the insecurity phenomenon currently plaguing the South-East.
But other tweeters called for calm saying that soldiers were free to move about like other Nigerians.
