A plot by Boko Haram terrorists to bomb the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport was uncovered last Monday by the Department of State Service, DSS.

The DSS made this known yesterday in a statement by an official, Tony Opuiyo in which he said a 14-year-old boy, Sulaiymon Abdulraman (a.k.a Sunday Ajayi), from Kogi State was apprehended inside the airport.

On interrogation, Abdulraman allegedly disclosed that he infiltrated the airport with the assistance of one Dauda Sadiq (a.k.a Peter) who the DSS said, was presently at large and was directed to spy on the installation and pass information in respect of travellers’ movements, including passenger screening, boarding procedures and other processes in the departure and arrival halls.

“The Department of State Services (DSS) wishes to inform the general public that on August 24, 2015, the Service in liaison with Aviation Security of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja, disrupted a spying network mounted by the Boko Haram terrorists.

“In the process, a fourteen (14) year-old Sulaiymon Abdulraman (a.k.a Sunday Ajayi), of Kogi State was apprehended. Abdulraman has disclosed among others that he infiltrated the airport with the assistance of one Dauda Sadiq (a.k.a Peter) who is presently at large.

“Abdulraman further revealed that Dauda Sadiq directed him to spy on the installation and pass to him information in respect of travelers’ movements, including passenger screening, boarding procedures and other processes in the departure and arrival halls,” Opuiyo said.

The DSS said investigation is on going and they are working closely with officials of the Aviation Security Department to forestall any possible attack and to ensure adequate security at the airports.

“With this knowledge, the Service is working closely with major aviation stakeholders especially the Aviation Security Department to forestall any possible attack and to ensure adequate security at the airports. This is aside other measures which have been put in place to ensure protection of lives and property across the country,” Opuiyo said.
