The Department of State Services (DSS) in Kano yesterday said it arrested a top Boko Haram commander and 20 others suspects.

The Director, Kano local office of DSS, Alhassan Muhammad, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano that the 48 hours operation neutralised what would have been a bloody Eid-el-Fitr in Kano recent history.

Muhammad disclosed that the combat operations jointly carried out by the police, and his men led to the arrest of the unit commander of Boko Haram who was also in charge of Kano, Kaduna and Sokoto.

He explained that it also arrested 30 other suspects while planning coordinated attacks during Sallah festivity in Kano and other major northern cities.

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.

The Director revealed that “arms and ammunition, primed Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs were recovered from the suspects’ hideouts in the state”.
