DSS Nabs Gunmen in Kano

The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has arrested two gunmen in Kano State, The Cable reports.

Peter Afunanya, the DSS spokesperson, said in a statement that the gunmen were arrested on Thursday

Afunanya said the operatives seized two AK-47 assault rifles; two empty AK-47 magazines; a red boxer motorcycle; and a sack of yams in which the guns were concealed.

He said the suspects were in transit to deliver the arms for a planned attack in one of the states in northern Nigeria. He said the development underscores the need for citizens to be extra vigilant and report any unusual or suspicious movements, persons, or acts to security agencies nearest to them.

“Operators and patrons of fun, hospitality, and tourism centres are enjoined to be cautious during the festive periods,” Afunanya said. “They should scale up measures to ensure the safety of their facilities.

“However, the service wishes the Muslim faithful, peaceful and joyous Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.”

It pledges to work with sister agencies and other stakeholders to emplace adequate security during and after the events.”
