The Department of State Services on Tuesday confirmed its joint raid with the military and police forces on terrorists’ hideouts in parts of Kaduna and Kano states.
A statement by DSS Spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya, said that during the operation, the terrorists deployed Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) against the fighting forces.
The statement said one of the terrorists who wore suicide jacket, blew himself up, while three suspects were arrested.
Accordingto the statement, items recovered upon a search on the group’s accommodation, after Police EOD had diffused other IEDs, were: two suicide jackets, one AK-47 rifle, a pistol and one laptop.
During the raid in Kano State, two suspects were arrested while a pistol, eleven mobile phones, two hand grenades, one fully charged AK-47 magazine, two empty AK-47 magazines, one Peugeot 307 car and an ID card belonging to a suspect that escaped, were seized.
The raid was based on Intelligence,which had earlier revealed that high profile terrorist were regrouping in the North West to carry out dastardly acts in the area. The terrorists escape into the North West is said to be necessitated by the steady military operations in the North East.
Afunanya said,”The Service commends the Nigerian Military and Police for their resilience and support which led to the success of the operation.
“The sustained interagency synergy is, without doubt, a game changer in the counter-threat actions.
“Also, the Service wishes to state and very clearly, that it will continue to collaborate with sister agencies to rid the nation of criminal elements particularly at this transition period and even beyond. This is more so that certain persons are desperate to undermine the process.
” But the Service will resist this and ensure a seamless event. It will continue to cooperate with stakeholders to achieve a peaceful environment critical to the pursuit of legitimate businesses by law abiding citizens and residents,” the agency stated.
