The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested five suspects allegedly planning to attack the United States and United Kingdom embassies in Abuja.

A statement yesterday by DSS official, Tony Opuiyo, said the service busted the ISIS-linked Boko Haram members based in Benue State and the FCT.

He said: “The group had perfected plans to attack the UK and American embassies and other western interests in Abuja.”

He added that: “during the operation to thwart this plan, five key suspects, namely: Isa Jibril, Jibril Jibril, Abu Omale Jibril, Halidu Sule and Amhodu Salifu, were arrested.”

He also said suspected Ansaru kingpins, Ahmed Momoh and Al-amin Mohammed Jamin were arrested at Igarra, Akoko Edo LGA, Edo State.

They were said to have been confirmed as associates of Abu Uwais, the main Ansaru kingpin terrorizing residents in Kogi and Edo States.

Opuiyo further said former Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, is being detained in line with the dictates of the law, noting that he has not cooperated on issues concerning the recovery of large cache of arms at his facilities.

He explained that, “While investigation is ongoing on this matter, the Service has valid detention warrants to keep him. He will be charged accordingly, once the investigations are concluded.”
