Nigeria Thwarts Boko Haram Plan To Attack US, UK Embassies - AP; Foxnews US by nduchucks: 2:42pm On Apr 12, 2017


ABUJA, Nigeria – Nigerian security officials said Wednesday they have thwarted plans by Islamic State group-linked Boko Haram members to attack the embassies of the United States and Britain.

A statement by the Department of State Services said that late last month it broke up a ring that had "perfected plans to attack" the embassies along with "other Western interests" in Nigeria's capital, Abuja.

The statement said five suspects who had been based in Benue state and the Federal Capital Territory were arrested. It gave no further details, and officials with the department could not immediately be reached.

The U.S. embassy did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The State Department on April 5 issued an updated travel warning for Nigeria, warning that Boko Haram has targeted government installations and other venues in the past in the Federal Capital Territory and elsewhere.

Nigeria's president late last year declared the Boko Haram insurgency "crushed," but its fighters continue to threaten the vast region around Lake Chad in defiance of a multinational force. It has increasingly used children, especially girls, as suicide bombers.

Boko Haram's seven-year Islamic uprising has killed more than 20,000 people and driven 2.6 million from their homes, with millions facing starvation

Kudos to the Nigerian securities. More grease to your elbow. I hope the apprehended terrorists will face the charges leveled against them and perhaps give the authorities some Intel.

See ehn, which kain fable be this one?
You arrested five suspects in a high profile counter -terrorist op and 2weeks later we don't know if they are goats or chicken or lizards? Which kain country be this?
In saner countries, when a suspect is arrested, it doesn't take them 24hrs to unmask and arraign them.
In Nigeria our case is different

Indeed. But don't forget it's $600 million into the coffers of the US, for stripped-down, previous-generation planes. $600 million can rehabilitate just about all potential fighters for Boko Haram with food, housing and jobs. The major reason Boko Haram got so strong is poverty.

An ideology cannot be finished off. Physical human beings can be destroyed, but abstract ideas is more difficult to destroy.....

They can keep their ideology, but that does not mean that we cannot finish off their abilities to terrorize our great people. I submit to you that we can render Boko Haram impotent in terms of them carrying out terrorist acts against our people. We need to hit them hard.
