Jabi Lake Mall, one of the popular shopping outlets in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has shut down.
The development comes amid the tension of a possible terrorist attack in Nigeria’s capital.
At least, five foreign missions issued a warning notice to their citizens to avoid non-essential trips to Nigeria’s capital over the possible attack.
In a statement, the management of the mall apologized to customers for any inconvenience caused.
“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.” (Daily Trust)
