The Department of State Services, DSS, has on Sunday revealed plans by Islamist-Jihadist sect, Boko Haram, to infiltrate the Nigerian Army.
The security agency noted that some of the insurgents are already making plans to join the army.
The DSS however noted that two of the insurgents who were specialist in the making of Improvised Explosive Devise were arrested before the success of their plans to join the army.
In a statement released to its effect, the spokesperson of the DSS, Mr Tony Opuiyo noted that the suspected Boko Haram members were arrested in Kano.
“In response to the regrouping of Boko Haram elements in Kano State, the Service in concert with the military, carried out coordinated operations in the state which led to the apprehension of two high profile members of the sect.
“They are Ibrahim Abubakar and Idris Audu. Audu is an IED specialist who was being groomed to penetrate security agencies in the country.”
The statement further revealed that “Audu had already perfected plans to seek for recruitment into the next recruitment scheme of the Nigeria Army, before his arrest.”
The DSS’ spokesperson further attributed the success of the operation which stopped the suspected Boko Haram members from infiltrating the Nigerian army to the Police’s sustained tactical and counter-terrorism operations.
