Boko Haram Members Plan to Join Army – DSS Makes Shocking Revelation

Boko Haram has been reportedly planning to infiltrate the Nigerian army by taking up membership and destroying the body from the inside.

According to the Punch, a shocking revelation by the Directorate of State Security yesterday in Abuja reveals some dreaded Boko Haram members are set to join the Nigerian army as moles in order to be privy to the intelligence reports gathered about the terrorist group.
The DSS throught its Spokesperson, Mr Tony Opuiyo alleged that two members of the sect, who it described as specialists in the making of Improvised Explosive Devices, had been nabbed before they succeeded in joining the army.
The two Boko Haram suspects were apprehended in Kano following credible intelligence reports gathered on them.

He said, “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.

“Audu had already perfected plans to seek for recruitment into the next recruitment scheme of the Nigeria Army, before his arrest.”

He attributed the success recorded in the arrest of these two suspects to the secret police’s sustained tactical and counter-terrorism operations.

Opuiyo also said that the service on August 22 arrested one Samuel Asuquo, who was described as a kidnap kingpin, at Nasarawa Bakoko village in Cross River State.

He said that the suspect was the mastermind of the kidnap of three Australian staff of Lafarge Cement Company, for which his gang received ransom of N150m.
