Announcing the arrest, the DSS statement said, “You may recall that last week, this service informed the public of the arrest of Khalid Al-Barnawi, known for his leadership and notoriety in terrorism activities in Nigeria,” Garba Abdullahi, an agent of the DSS, told the press.

“Nigerians were also informed of his talent-spotting and recruitment of young people into the Ansaru/Boko Haram terrorist groups. With the arrest of Al-Barnawi, the Department of State Services (DSS) has made an uncommon success in the decimation of these groups and their leadership.”

“Similarly, the service wishes to inform that it has further arrested Bello Danhajiya, a close associate and presumed second in command to Al-Barnawi.

“Danhajiya is a Fulani from Zamfara State and a strategic accomplice of Al-Barnawi. Preliminary investigations have disclosed his involvement in gun-running, cattle rustling and other nefarious criminal activities principally on the directives of his commander, Al-Barnawi. So far, efforts are being made to conclude the investigations and commence prosecution in line with the law.”
