Four informants behind Abuja terror attacks arrested

Four suspected informants believed to be leaking information to terrorists about troops’ locations and movements around the outskirts of Abuja have been arrested and currently in the custody of a security agency.

An intelligence operative told newsmen that the suspects were arrested with sophisticated equipment including Walkie-Talkies, revolver, knives, amulets, and old Chinese made phones that do not use data.

The source, who was part of the raid that led to the arrest of the informants, said discreet investigations were ongoing to confirm their leaders and financiers.

“Activities of the terrorist-collaborators were responsible for the recent attacks on Guards Brigade soldiers in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and a military check point at Zuba, a border town between Abuja and Niger state on Abuja-Kaduna highway,” the source added.

It was further gathered that the suspects are currently being interrogated to determine if they were working for terrorist groups or armed bandits or other elements with ulterior motives.

“I can authoritatively inform you that, while the military has deliberately refused to provide updates since the attack on Kuje Prison, to last attacks on troops at the Bwari and Zuma Rock axis, the joint security task force has so far killed more than 70 armed criminals, including dangerous Kuje prison escapees and terrorists.”

Meanwhile, another source gathered that the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) is also coordinating a discreet intelligence operation aimed at providing new clues and traces of groups behind recent attacks on security personnel and formations.
