According to an intelligence official, Boko Haram terrorists are trying to extend their violent campaign across the country including Lagos.

The Department of State Service’s spokesman, Tony Opuiyo said there has been a sudden influx of Boko Haram agents into Lagos and other parts of Nigeria outside the militants’ main area in northeastern Nigeria.

Opuiyo said today that Boko Haram terrorists are trying to extend their reach after being pushed out of the urban centers of northeastern Nigeria in recent months.

Security agencies had arrested 14 Boko Haram suspects in Lagos, the capital Abuja and other parts of the country outside the northeast in the past two months, said Opuiyo. Those arrested include cell leaders, some of whom admitted to involvement in recent suicide attacks, he said.

A teenager was arrested at Abuja Int’l airport on Friday for spying for Boko Haram.
