According to Reuters, the Nigerian and an Iraqi were detained on Thursdays, April 7, and accused of planning “a serious act of violence”.

A prosecutor, Thomas Steinkraus-Koch, information was provided by security sources that both men could have been in contact with ISIS members.

Report said no suspicious items were found on the suspects upon arrest but police investigation is ongoing.

They are being held in the Bavarian capital Munich and nearby Fuerstenfeldbruck, a police statement said, adding that no imminent threat to the public yet.

Islamic State had on Tuesday released a video, suggesting it might carry out further attacks in the West, naming, London, Berlin and Rome as possible targets.

The terror group has claimed responsibility for bombings that killed 31 people in Brussels in March 2016 and attacks in Paris in November 2015 that killed 130 people.
