DSS arrests another suspected terror kingpin

13 April 2016, 20:29

Abuja - The Department of State Services (DSS) has reported the arrest of another alleged terror kingpin, Bello Danhajiya.

He is said to be a close associate of Khalid Al-Barnawi, whom the DSS arrested last week.

With the arrest of Al-Barnawi, the Department of State Services (DSS) has made an uncommon success in the decimation of these groups and their leadership,” said DSS Spokesperson: Tony Opuiyo, said in Abuja.

“Similarly, the Service wish to inform that it has further arrested Bello Danhajiya, a close associate and presumed second in command to Al-Barnawi.

The suspect is said to be from Zamfara State.

Opuiyo said preliminary investigations had disclosed his involvement in gun-running, cattle rustling and other nefarious criminal activities principally on the directives of his said commander, Al-Barnawi.

“So far, efforts are being made to conclude the investigations and commence prosecution in line with the law,” he said.

In another development, DSS said it had arrested some men suspected to be behind a spate of impersonation of government officials and the increasing rate of defrauding of unsuspecting members of the public by some unscrupulous elements.

The suspects have been named as Aminu Ado, David Ali Michika, Umar Hamza, James Malu Akune and Kazeem Kayode Usman.

“This Service wish to re-emphasize its commitment to the safety of all law abiding citizens and residents and will continue to decisively deal with those who have chosen to be on the wrong side of the law,” Opuiyo said.
