DSS arrests Boko Haram leaders, kidnappers

In what can be de­scribed as a major raid, the Department of State Services (DSS), has arrested many Boko Har­am terrorists and kidnap­pers in various locations across the country.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja, yesterday and signed by Tony Upuiyo.
According to the state­ment, after conducting se­curity operations in some flash points in Lagos, the Service arrested seven kidnap suspects.
While describing how the suspects were arrest­ed, the DSS said: “Gilbert Koku Nelson, John Nel­son, Adekoya Kazeem, Muhammad Lawal, Abu Yahro and Kelvin Nwa­naji, were arrested in con­nection with the kidnap of a management staff of Dangote Company.
“The two other sus­pects, Abdullahi Bello, a Custom Officer and Bello Gumel, were apprehended at Navy Town, Ojo LGA, and Naval Base, Alakija, respectively, in connec­tion with the kidnap of another Custom Officer, on December 20, 2016.”
Members of the gang, the statement noted, spe­cialised in spying on sen­ior company executives and laying ambush for kidnap and robbery op­erations for huge ransoms.
