Some Persons suspected to be terrorists terrorizing many parts of the country have been apprehended by the Military in Lagos state.
Reports say that the suspects were kitted in Military uniforms and were picked in different parts of the state.
Findings show that the arrested terrorists were in Lagos to survey some areas for possible attacks in the state.
The arrests, according to reports, were made by the Department of State Service, DSS, and the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army.
In an interview with journalists at the 81 Division headquarters in Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island, the outgoing General Officer, 81 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maj. Gen. Umar Musa on Tuesday, confirmed that many arrests were made, stating that they were handed over to the Nigeria Police Force.
Maj. Gen Musa, said, “I can’t remember how many impersonators we have arrested. But we still have quite a large number of them.
“When we make arrests we hand them over to the Nigeria Police to do further investigation and prosecute them because we don’t have the power to prosecute.”
Musa didn’t categorically state that they were terrorists but confirmed that the person who supplied the military kits to the arrested persons had been apprehended and will face the music.
