Jabi Lake Mall

Jabi Lake Mall in Abuja has shut down its operations following the alleged threats to security in the Federal Capital Territory.

The mall, which is located in the Utako area of the FCT, announced this on Thursday via Instagram.

The management said that although it was not its intention to disrupt activities, they had taken the decision for the safety of shoppers and workers in the mall.

They added that they were reviewing the security situation with relevant authorities and that the mall would be reopened as soon as possible.

“To all our valued shoppers, Jabi Lake Mall will be closed today, Thursday, October 27, 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 minimising 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 apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to provide you with a quality shopping experience soon. Thank you,” the post read.

The United States Embassy in Abuja had first issued warning to its citizens in Abuja on Sunday over the alleged security threats. Canada has joined in issuing the security warning.
