The Department of State Services said on Sunday in Abuja that some members of the dreaded Boko Haram were already making plans to join the army, and two members of the sect, that specialised in the making of Improvised Explosive Devise, had been caught before they succeeded in joining the army.

Mr. Tony Opuiyo, the DSS, spokesperson who stated this in a statement in Abuja on Sunday, said that the suspects were arrested in Kano.

He said, “In response to the regrouping of Boko Haram elements in Kano State, the Service in concert with the military, carried out coordinated operations in the state which led to the apprehension of two high profile members of the sect.

“They are Ibrahim Abubakar and Idris Audu. Audu is an IED specialist who was being groomed to penetrate security agencies in the country.

“Audu had already perfected plans to seek for recruitment into the next recruitment scheme of the Nigeria Army, before his arrest.”
