A Granite City woman who is reportedly on an ISIS hit-list said an FBI agent came to her home and told her to “arm up” because she is a potential target.
A Special Agent with the FBI on Wednesday came to April Agers’ front door, knocked and delivered the startling news. Agers is on an ISIS hit-list.
The agent told Agers she’s been on the list since 2002 and 14 years later, this is the first time she knew she was a target. The agent said there’s a possible threat against her.
“I do fear for my children and I do fear for myself,” Agers told News 4. “It’s serious. To me you come to my home and you tell me my life in danger.”
Agers wanted to know why her name showed up on the list, but the agent would provide an answer. The FBI provided the following statement to News 4.
“The FBI routinely notifies individuals and organizations of potential threat information. We perform these notifications so potential victims are aware of possible threats and take appropriate steps. Those measures may include paying close attention to your surroundings at all times, protecting personally identifiable information, and immediately calling the local authorities if you observe something suspicious. The FBI will continue to work closely with federal, state, and local partners to keep the public informed of potential threats.”
