A 29-year unnamed Nigerian, alongside an Iraqi, aged 46, were on Thursday detained by the German police on suspicion of having links with Islamic State, ISIS and of planning ‘a serious act of violence,’ Reuters reports.
This was made known by a German police prosecutor, Thomas Steinkraus-Koch in a statement yesterday.
According to the statement, security sources have provided information that both suspects could have been in contact with members of ISIS.
“Police did not immediately find any suspicious items, but are pursuing investigation.
According to the police, the names of the suspects would not be revealed until investigations were completed.
