Abuja – The Department of State Services (DSS) has reportedly said that it has arrested some suspected Niger Delta Avengers (NDA militants.
According to The Cable, the secret police said on Friday that a suspected member of the NDA, who is also an associate of Tompolo, Selky Torughedi, was arrested for planning to assassinate a serving military officer in Kaduna state.
Another suspect was arrested while planning to carry out attack installations on oil installations.
A report by Pulse, however said on Saturday that the NDA had debunked the claims by the DSS, describing the reports as "laughable"
"Reports from National dailies that two suspects Mr Christian Oluba alias Sensor, and Selky Kile Torughedi arrested by DSS are alleged members of Niger Delta Avengers is [are] laughable. The fact is they are sleeper agents of the DSS sent after the Niger Delta Avengers," the NDA said in a statement.
