DSS arrests ‘ISWAP commander’ over Kogi explosion



The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has arrested two suspected masterminds — including a commander in the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) — over the recent explosion in Kogi.


According to a statement issued on Wednesday by Peter Afunanya, the DSS spokesperson, the suspects were identified as Abdulmumin Ibrahim Otaru, said to be an ISWAP commander, and one Saidu Suleiman.


The DSS said they were arrested on Tuesday.


Recall that an explosion rocked a community in Okene LGA of Kogi state on December 29, 2022.


The incident, which took place shortly before President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated some projects in the state, occurred at a mosque near the palace of Ado Ibrahim, the paramount ruler of Ebiraland.
