Report by The Nation, has it that the terrorist suspect has been accused of killing of expatriates in the country between 2012 and 2013 as secret services in various parts of the world have been trooping into Nigeria to interact with the suspect.
The suspect remains unnamed because he is still “undergoing profiling”, a source told the newspaper.
“He is still in our custody. “This suspect was responsible for the killing of some expatriates in the country between 2012 and 2013.”
The source also revealed how the DSS intercepted a plot to carry out a deadly terrorist attack on the United States“About six months ago, we burst a terrorist attack that was to happen in the United States.
“In fact, President Barack Obama placed a call to President Muhammadu Buhari to acknowledge what we did.
“We did not make it a media issue because before you know it, there will be editorials asking us whether we had addressed security challenges in Nigeria before helping the US.
“But the speed with which things are changing and expanding around us, I can tell you that security challenge is becoming more globalised.
“We have been taken into confidence as a nation better than what it was before.”
Also, ahead of 2019 election, activities of some politicians are under watch by the secret service. The politicians include a few who are making inciting statements and “beating war drums ahead of 2019 general elections”.
“If there is any one group that is dangerous, it is the politicians. They are more dangerous than Boko Haram.
”The way 2019 is being looked at, many knives and sticks are being sharpened because of some people's interest.
“A politician now throws decorum to the winds because he wants to be president or governor. He is now dishing out stories that will make this country to be burning… We want to reach 2019 in peace and not in pieces.
“The way they are interested in power without any plans on what to do gives calls for concern. They are turning truth into falsehood," a DSS source was quoted.
United States President Barack Obama telephoned President Muhammadu Buhari to hail the feat, a source told The Nation.
