Sunday September 10, 2017 – Islamic State Of West Africa’s Plan To Bomb Abuja, Bauchi, Kano, Kaduna, Yobe & Borno States Foiled, Mastermind Arrested

The Department of State Services (DSS) operatives have foiled ISIS West Africa’s plan to cause mayhem in 7 key states during the last Eid el Kabir celebration.

The alleged mastermind of the plot, Husseini Mai-Tangaran, was also arrested by the agency.

He was picked up in Kano on August 31, the eve of the celebration.

The DSS described him yesterday as “a well known senior ISWA commander who has been on the Service and Nigeria Army radar since 2012, when he spearheaded the armed attacks on the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone I, on 20th January, 2012, as well as other public places in Kano.”

He is also said to have been responsible for “the deadly explosive attacks against worshippers at the Kano Central Mosque as well as an attack on a military formation in Yobe State in 2015, which claimed hundreds of lives.

“Under the banner of the Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA) which he belongs, Mai-Tangaran, an IED expert had been prepping and priming others for the perpetration of suicide bombing attacks carried out by the group in the past within the North-East region,” it added.

The DSS, in a statement in Abuja, said the ‘sinister plans’ which would have involved the deployment of suicide bombers and gun attacks were aimed at causing mayhem during the festivities.

Also in the custody of the security agency are eight other suspects including Abdulkadir Umar Mohammed said to be a Boko Haram fighter and Muhammed Ali, described as the financial courier of the group in Kano.
The agency said Abdulkadir Mohammed “left the conclave of the group in the Sambisa forest, to join ranks with ISWA towards carrying out the attacks being planned by the group.”

Prior to his arrest at Sheka on September 3, Muhammed Ali, according to the DSS was “one of the conduits through which funds and other material logistics were channelled to the group from foreign extremist elements/sponsors.

“Like Abdulkadir Umar Mohammed, Ali was involved in the plot to perpetrate the planned attacks in Kano and other states in the North.”

Also arrested are two other fighters of the Habib Al-Barnawi-led Islamic State of West Africa (ISWA) in Minna, Niger State, Abdulkarim Mohammed aka Baba Maigiwa, said to be a spy/ double agent to the Boko Haram group in the North-East region, and three individuals whose names were not revealed.

Yahaya Mohammed Abatcha and Yusuf Mohammed are tagged “leading elements of a cell of the extremist group and have been hibernating and furthering the doctrines of the group in the city.

“They were also said to be responsible for operations in FCT Abuja, Kaduna and Niger states.

Baba Maigiwa, according to the DSS, “has been spying on targets in Maiduguri, particularly troops’ deployments/positioning and subsequently passing same to elements of the group in Sambisa forest, while also pretending to be working for the security forces.

Maigiwa’s apprehension led to the arrest of the three whose names were not given.

The service however said they are “cooperating in providing useful information on the diabolical plans of the group.”

The DSS said it also has in its custody one Moses Peverga suspected to be a major source of arms supply to the Gana Akwaza-led gangs in Benue State.

Though based in Lokoja, he was trailed and apprehended after investigations revealed who he is.

  1. (Islam they claimed is the religion of peace)

    This is the greaTEST lie ever told in the history of existence. A lie that even the devil itself is not bold enough to promote.
    -Religion of BONDAGE, FALSEHOOD & DECIET.

    May God have mercy on their ratched & damned souls.

    I take a stroll…

    • I agree with you J B Hunter, I use to think to myself how peaceful will the world be if there is no religion that permits shedding of innocent blood.
      This Arab-created religion is one of the threat to human existence. I fear by next year, these foolish jihadists will be all over the world

    • I know a day will come that J.B Hunter will use words that will reflect that the religion He belongs to is not of bondage, deceit(note the spelling!) and of the devil.If some people could study the English version of the Quran like some intelligent people are doing and the way some of us have studied the Bible, our horizon will be broadened. Did it occur to some of us that some are using the religion to fight political and personal wars or that people’s culture and the temperament associated with the culture and the group are more likely to be responsible for their deeds? *****will condemn all Muslims or the religion, unless, of course, you are J.B Hunter

  2. WHICH ONE BE ISWA AGAIN..THE MASTERMINDERS OF THIS MADNESS WILL BE THE ONES TO SHOULDER ALL THE DESTRUCTIONS.THE NORTH WILL BEAR THE HEAT AND WILL KNOW EVIL DEEDS PAYS NO ONE . OYA..KEEP BLOWING UP YOURSELVES

  3. The money that we will use to build roads and put steady power for nigerians, we spent billions every week paying and feeding nigeria military which is 70% northerners to fight boko haram which northern governors created.

    These northerns contributes absolutely nothing to nigeria economy and the government controlled since 100 years by the northen terrorists waste he oil money for nothing.

    Untill nigerians realize that these northerners are nomads and nothing good will ever come from them, we will remain in darkness.

    It is said that, when we write the whole disbelieve, it comes to a point that they also believe in the oneness of God but with different believe. It’s like saying we all believe in oneness of God but we are two parties who believe differently like Knight and Day.

    • I WILL JUDGE ESPECIALLY from u tunji from oduduwa speaking on behalf of yr adopted arab dominated hate filled religion targetting christians.i dont want to hear your garbage sermon.belive in jesus christ and be saved

  5. if they are looking for someone to arrest , they should start by arresting babaginda, he donated one billion dollars for islamisation of africa at Abuja declaration of 1989. world islamsation is not only Nigeria, africa but global . it’s the agenda of the world elites . part of london is now ( no go area, both for the public and police) they have the backing of the government and also being sposored by the Saudi government. as christians, you have to be prayerful and dedicated because even Jesus Christ warned us that during HIs time on earth , the anti christ was existing.
