Sequel to increasing threat posed to public peace by the activities of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB), this Service arrested one Chidiebere Onwudiwe, a graduate of Mechanical and chemical engineering and known member of IPOB, on 22 June, 2016," Opuiyo said.

Continuing, he said, “Onwudiwe and his associates within and outside the country were planning to carry out coordinated attacks against religious bodies/edifices, police-check points and the computer village in Ikeja, Lagos state, with Improvised Explosive devices (IEDS). The suspect was apprehended while making logistics supplies for their nefarious plan.

The DSS recently announced the arrest of some suspected members of the Niger Delta Avengers, who have been terrorising the Niger Delta oil facilities in the last two months.
