The Department of State Services (DSS) in collaboration with the military, has arrested suspected two high profile members of Boko Haram.
Ibrahim Abubakar and Idris Audu, alias AYA were arrested in Kano according to Tony Opuiyo, a spokesman for DSS.
He said that Audu was an IED specialist who was being groomed to penetrate security agencies in the country.
Opuiyo said he had already perfected plans to seek for recruitment into the next recruitment scheme of the Nigerian Army before his arrest.
He said the service carried out other operations leading to the arrest of some suspects in Kano, Abia, Abuja, Benue, Benn and Imo.
Opuiyo said the service was currently intensifying action against high-level fraudsters whose activities were negatively affecting investors confidence.
He restated the service’s determination to ensure a safe environment for all to carry out their legitimate businesses.
“We call on members of the public to support this effort by providing useful information to security agencies.
