The DSS’ Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, in a statement late Thursday night, said the suspects were in possession of two AK-47 assault rifles, two empty AK-47 magazines, a red Boxer motorcycle, and a sack of yams in which the guns were concealed.
“The suspects were on transit to deliver the arms for a planned attack in one of the States in Northern Nigeria,” the statement read. “This development underscores the need for citizens to be extra vigilant and report any unusual or suspicious movements, persons or acts to the security agencies nearest to them.
“Operators and patrons of fun, hospitality and tourism centres are enjoined to be cautious during the festive periods. They should scale up measures to ensure safety of their facilities.”
