Salah: DSS Uncovers Boko Haram’s Plot To Attack 4 Northern States

The Department of State Services (DSS), on Friday, uncovered Boko Haram’s plot to attack four northern states during this year’s Salah celebration.

The states are Kaduna, Sokoto and Borno.

An operative of the DSS, Tony Opuiyo, who made the disclosure in Abuja, said two suspects — Yusuf Adamu and Abdulmuminu Halad were arrested in Sokoto in connection with the plot in the early hours of Friday.

The statement reads in part: “This is an attempt to assume formidable cover to unleash violence and evoke a complete state of chaos in Abuja and other northern states.

“Sequel to this, the SSS is warning members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) to desist from staging any form of procession or demonstration as the terrorists will seize the opportunity to unleash mayhem,” he said.

He advised the public to disregard the antics of the terrorist extremists to cause breakdown of law and order and instill fear in the populace.

“The Service is working in concert with other security agencies to ensure that no section of the country is attacked during and after the salah celebrations.”

He enjoined law abiding citizens and residents to go about their normal businesses without fear.
