NIGERIA: DSS Arrests 20 Boko Haram Terrorists, 11 Kidnap Suspects

The Department of State Services (DSS) has announced the arrests of 20 Boko Haram, and 11kidnap suspects across the country.

Among those apprehended between January and March, are a suspected Boko Haram kingpin, Adenoyi Abdulsalam, who had concluded plans to kidnap high-profile individuals in Ekiti State, as well as two kidnap suspects, whose alleged involvement in the kidnap of two German archaeologists in Kaduna last month, was being investigated.
It will be recalled that the German nationals, Dr. Peter Breuning and Johannes Brehinger, were kidnapped on February 22, at Pahkogo, Kagarko LGA, Kaduna State.
The disclosure was made in a statement by Mr. Tony Opuiyo, who further noted that the on-going operations “have significantly degraded capabilities of hoodlums, especially kidnappers and terrorists whose activities have continually threatened the peace.”
Apart from Ekiti, other states where the arrests were effected, are Bauchi, Gombe, Kaduna, Kogi, Nasarawa and Yobe, respectively.
