Abuja - Nigerian police have stepped up patrols and surveillance in cities across the country following a spate of terror attacks in Kano.

According to sources, police operatives are carrying out both overt and covert operations nationwide, while special teams are carrying out sweeping raids on suspected terrorist hide outs.

As part of on-going investigations into the various terror related incidents that occurred in Kano, police operatives have arrested five male suspects for their complicity in the attacks.

All suspects are currently undergoing interrogation.
