What could have ended as a great disaster has been foiled by the Department of State Services (DSS) yesterday as it uncovered a plot to bomb Nigeria’s largest computer market, the Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos.
The DSS has arrested one Chidiebere Onwudiwe, a graduate of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering and local members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as the brains behind the plot.
The DSS said in a statement that the suspect was working with foreign and local members of IPOB to perfect the plot.
It also claimed to have uncovered another plot to bomb worship centres and parks during the coming Eid el Fitri festival.
The DSS in a statement released in Abuja last night read thus; “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 22nd June, 2016.
“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.
In a related development, the DSS has also arrested one Christian Oluba aka Sensor, another suspected militant with the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA). Sensor was arrested while perfecting plans to carry out explosive attacks on critical oil and gas pipelines, including critical storage points.
