DSS arrests ‘ISIS commanders’ in Abuja

The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has arrested two Islamic State in West Africa commanders in Kukuntu village, Gwgwalada, Abuja.

The DSS said this in a statement issued by Tony Opuiyo, an operative of the service.

Ouiyo said the suspects were arrested on May 5, after special operations on identified targets.

The statement was issued three days after UK Sun reported that ISIS leaders were sneaking “battle-hardened extremists” from Syria into Nigeria.

After the report, the federal government ordered an intensified screening of passengers and luggage at the nation’s airports.

Opuiyo said in a related operation on April 28, the service also arrested one Umar Dogo, a suspected member of ISWA at Muda Lawal market in Bauchi.

He said the suspects were discovered to have concluded plans to perpetuate the ideals of the group in the area, and in collaboration with Boko Haram, carry out heinous violent attacks on innocent persons.

The operative also said following intelligence reports, two experts in improvised explosive devices (IEDs), Adamu Hassan, aka Bale and Abubakr Abubakar aka Alhaji or Buba, were arrested.
