The Department of State Services said in Abuja on Wednesday, that it had busted a ring of ISIS-linked Boko Haram members based in Benue State and the Federal Capital Territory.

It said that during the operation to thwart this plan, which was carried on both March 25 and 25, five key suspects were arrested.

The service gave the names of the suspects as Jibril Isa, Jibril Jibril, Omale Jibril, Halidu Sule and Amhodu Salifu.

Before the arrest of the suspects, it said the group had perfected plans to attack the United Kingdom and the United State of American Embassies and other western interests in Abuja.

This information was contained in a statement issued on behalf of the service by its spokesman, Mr. Tony Opuiyo.

He said that on March 22  at Fika, Yobe State, a 20-year-old Boko Haram member, Adamu Daitti was also arrested.

He said that the suspect confessed his involvement in executing the sinister activities of the group.

Opuiyo added that on April 4,  two suspected Ansaru kingpins, Ahmed Momoh and Al-amin Mohammed Jamin were arrested at Igarra, Akoko Edo, Edo State.

He said that the two suspects had been confirmed to be associates of Abu Uwais, who he said was known to be a main Ansaru kingpin terrorising residents in Kogi and Edo States.

He said that while these terrorists suspects were already undergoing detailed investigations, the service had also stepped up its efforts at stamping out the menace of kidnapping.

In Rivers State for instance, he said that Daniel Diniamaka was arrested on March 24, at Obio/Akpor Local Government Area for his alleged complicity in the kidnap of one Emmanuel Ukah on January 20.

On that same day, Opuiyo said that one Godsgift Isioma  was arrested over his plan to kidnap one Dr. G.N Douglas.

Determined to decisively deal with the ugly menace of kidnapping and increasing violence in Benue State, Opuiyo added that the Service, on March 23, at Bangaji, Gboko, Benue State arrested Daniel  Lorve, who was described as a member of the Terwase Akwaaza (aka Gana) led notorious kidnapping and terrorist group.
