Alhassan said: “We have in our custody about 30 suspected Boko Haram terrorists including a sector commandant whom we arrested at Rijiyar Zaki and Dorayi areas of Kano in just two days.”

The Director said the success story was the outcome of a painstaking effort buoyed by intelligence gathering and sharing by the police and DSS which helped put more spots areas at red alert.

He added: “Our joint intelligence gathering and the synergy that existed between all the security apparatus in Kano give a moral buster to our giant efforts in tracking every suspicious movements and make it highly difficult for the terrorists to make any impact.”

Alhassan explained that the proactive move helped averted the dastardly planned to lay ambush on Kano and other cities in this period of Sallah celebrations.
