Abuja - A Nigerian national with links to the Islamic State has been detained along with an Iraqi man by German officials.

According to a Naij report, the pair were nabbed and detained on Thursday after suspicions arose that they were planning "a serious act of violence".

Thomas Steinkraus-Koch, state prosecutor in the case, has claimed that information had been provided by security sources proving that the two had links to the deadly terrorist group.
