The State Security Service (SSS), said it thwarted a plan to kidnap one of the daughters of late President Umaru Musa Yaradua.

Assistant Director Public Affairs of the Service, Marilyn Ogar, told journalists of the foiled kidnap plans at the head office of the Service when the suspects were paraded today.

She explained that, the suspects Hamza Abubakar and Lawrence Okoro Denis planned to kidnap and detain the lady in Zuba at the residence of an acquaintance to Denis.

The SSS spokesperson said, “The Service acting on actionable intelligence nullified the plot before it was actualized, and both Hamza Abubakar and other collaborators shall be charged to court soon.”

She refused to give the name of the target for the kidnap, saying that it would compromise the person’s security.

Marilyn said the suspects were arrested on the 21st of August as they perfected plans to kidnap the daughter of the late President at a construction site in Kado estate, Abuja.

She further said, “Hamza cultivated friendship with one Abu Katsina, a guard at the lady’s construction site. This afforded him leverage to visit the area regularly.

Having obtained sufficient information on the lady, he contacted Denis, who was in Owerri at the time. Both Denis and Hamza co-opted; Daddy Mohammed, Isa Keteri, Masaudu Kateri and IK (full name not known).”

The SSS also paraded 65 year old Elias Adams arrested for passing himself off as retired Nigerian Army General Abubakar Sani. He is also accused to have posed as a Special Adviser adviser to the President on defence.

Elias Adams is also accused to have claimed to be a coordinating member of the National Committee on Flood Relief and Rehabilation.

The SSS said investigations revealed that, Elias told officials of the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) that he was directed by the Presidential Villa to facilitate the speedy supply of Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK), through certain marketers located around flooded parts of the country.

“Investigation also showed that Elias impersonated a former Minister of Defence and secured 5 lorry loads of DPK from the Warri and Kaduna Depots respectively.” Marilyn said.

The SSS also paraded one Nicole Eze and five fake National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members who obtained fake certificates from Eze to enable them go for the NYSC.

He allegedly made about N530 thousand through the forge of educational certificates, Indian visas, Nigerian International Passports, and mobilization of fake corpers for the NYSC.
