100 soldiers storm terror suspects’ hideouts in Lagos

Two suspected Boko Haram members were arrested at a house in Ijora, Lagos yesterday by soldiers acting on a tip off.  The soldiers found AK-47 rifles, bomb, cartridges, daggers etc hidden in the apartment. Below is how Punch is reporting it:
Fear gripped many residents of Lagos  on Thursday when news filtered in that troops numbering about 100 stormed terror suspects’ hideouts in Ijora, a densely populated part of the city.
The soldiers, who were assisted by men of the State Security Service, were  believed to have acted on a tip-off. They were said to have arrived in the area around 7am in search of the suspects said to be  members of an Islamic fundamentalist sect, Boko Haram.
It was learnt that their search yielded fruits when two persons were arrested at 24 Aromire Street and three others at a location in an adjacent street.

The soldiers then ransacked the building at Aromire Street  where one of the arrested persons,  Ibrahim Musa,  occupies five rooms. A bomb  kept in a cooler and hidden inside the ceiling of one of the rooms in Musa’s apartment was recovered by the soldiers.

Musa, who a security source described as an illegal alien from Chad, was  said to be leader of the suspects.

Other items found  were AK-47 rifles, cartridges and daggers.

The security  source, who craved anonymity,  added the raid was as a result of an investigation which began a month ago.

He said, “Security agents got information a month ago that there was a terrorist hideout in  the Seven-Up area of  Ijora. Although we were not sure if they were Boko Haram members or not, we did not want to take any chances so we decided to go and raid the place.

“It was discovered that the place was being run by a Chadian and arms were recovered during the raid,  including AK-47 riffles. Investigations are ongoing and those who are found not culpable will be released.”

Musa’s neighbour,  who craved anonymity, told one of our correspondents that they did not suspect  he  was a member of Boko Haram.

He said the suspect  moved into the house less than three months ago.

 “Musa rented  his  apartment  about three months ago. However, since he moved in with  his wife, who recently had a baby  and a brother, none of them  had any known form of livelihood. Musa and his brother, particularly were always going about with their laptops and expensive phones.

“Though he (Musa) was not working, he was usually the first to pay for anything in the house. It was when the soldiers came that we got to know what they truly are. It was in the course of beating him (Musa) that he told the soldiers where he hid the bomb and   guns.”

Another  resident of the area, who identified himself simply as Olu, said that when  the suspects were  being taken away by the soldiers “we did not know they were living here.”

“When soldiers were taking them away, we wondered if they were living in the neighbourhood. It was my neighbour, who told me he had seen Musa once or twice,” he said.

Olu said when the soldiers were going, they told them to be vigilant in the area, saying Boko Haram members had infiltrated the area, particularly the Hausa settlement.

When one of our correspondents  met  the Ojora of Ijora  , Oba Fatai Adeyinka,  he  said he was shocked that Boko Haram members had infiltrated  the area.

The spokesman for the Army 81 Division, Colonel Kingsley Umoh, confirmed the raid but said the army had been carrying out constant raids across the state in response to the rising level of insecurity in the country.

Umoh said over 36 people had been arrested recently. He however said he had yet to receive  the details of Thursday’s operation.

He said, “The Nigerian Army is carrying out a proactive approach. We are raiding every nook and cranny of the state in order to rid it of criminal elements. We are not ignorant of the insecurity in the country so we are carrying out preventive measures and we want to make sure that Lagos is safe for all its inhabitants.

“The raids have been in collaboration with sister agencies like the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, the SSS, the police and others. It is the OP MESA of the army that is at the forefront of the raids and we have recorded many successes of late as we have also arrested some soldiers who were found wanting.

“I will not be able to brief you fully about Thursday’s raid.”

Lagos State Director, SSS, Achu Olayi, also confirmed the raid but  said that it was too soon for him  to say if the suspects were Boko Haram members or not.

The   raid on Thursday  on the predominantly Hausa settlement came a month after the SSS uncovered  a terror network coordinated by Iranians in Lagos.

The SSS had said while parading a leader of an Islamic sect, Abdullahi Berende, and two others that they  believed  that  the  operators of the Iranian terror cell were  gathering information about Israelis and Americans living in Nigeria.

I seriously had a laugh seeing Nigerians (some obviously dying of hunger) insult me yesterday. I guess I'm the hot-chop of this blog.

You all visit my blog profile every minute; I have almost 11K visits in less than 3 weeks. You all are so insecure about me. So your best option(s) are to wait for me to fuck up then you start shitting on me cause that's the only way to get at me.

The girls are so bitter I have a girlfriend; they send me hundreds of emails everyday. When I don't reply, they come over to this blog and start cussing me out.

Here are just two of the emails I get every now & then.

From: itcute2001@yahoo.com
To: pjobless
Date: Mar 6
Subj:
Hello can we be friend pls

From: ogechichukwurah@yahoo.com

Subj: Why :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
Why are you in love?
Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device

I have so many of them but these are the only ones I'm using as example.

The guys here are so bitter; is it because I'm handsome, rich and have a gf? (Oh Yes, I'm being arrogant).
You all probably can't live without reading my comments, yeah?

Then the beautiful Bellani; thought she was smart; then I saw her comments today about me. She's still my favourite female personnel here though.

So keep up with the insults. I swear I love being the most important person in your lives. It keeps me going.

It's common knowledge that many of the northerners are settlers from other countries. Hard economic times make it easy for them to resort to what they do best - being bestial. Lagosians shine eye well well o, abeg. We don't need collateral damage here at all at all. Keep all that sheet up north.

SOULJACHIC said...

Okay PJ, it's time for your self-absorbed narcissistic self to shut up. I could put up with your arrogance and sarcasm before, but now? Nah...now you are waaaayyyy too annoying and your comments hardly make sense.

Just so you know, just because you are bi-racial doesn't mean you are handsome. Honey, a fair skin doesn't guarantee that. Just compare Michael Jackson's before and after photos. I really don't find you appealing to the eyes. And the reason your profile views are high is cos people want to see the face of a human being that could be that childish, immature and senseless.

I suggest you take several seats and look for ways to clear the eczema and herpes on your face first before coming on this blog to write comments that make absolutely no sense whatsoever

Thanks..

And I hope u re studyin well in ur school "university of google" but pls,re u not ashamed of urself? My 13year old little brother is so much more matured dan u re and its so saddening cos I'm sure u re a disappointment to ur mother and father. No parents wants to hv a grown up whose brain develpoment is retarded. U hv d brain of a 7year old. I knw u re gay. No normal guy even if d guy is still a teenager can be dramatic like u and last time I checked,only gay guys re d dramatic ones amongst males. Only gay guys try so hard to tell d world he loves girls so pple won't suspect him,only gay guys whines amongst d male folks. U re disgusting. Very disgusting. U re a disappointment,a heartbreak to ur loved ones (if u hv any though cos u re d type dey will gladly disown) Even girls aint as dramatic and as airheaded as u re. U just so dumb. Nobody knws u,nobody even knws u hv a blog and who wants to waste their precious time to go to ur blog wen we hv d likes of linda ikeji and bella naija? Re u well at all? Re u ok? Don't u feel sorry for urself? U can't be famous like dis. Pple cannot be famous by being dumb. If d crowd don't like u,it means u hv serious personality problem and so dat requires u to work on urself. I can imagine how annoying ul be in real life if u can be dis stupid here. I really feel sorry for u cos its obvious u re just a fool who needs some growing up to do. Meanwhile,its time u came out from d cupboard. Its obvious u re a fag. No normal guy can be dramatic like dis except fags. Monkey

Linda pls is there a way you can get the SSS to publish numbers or email addys where people can actually reach them? Cos if there are some issues you report to the police they will make you suffer (open case file with money etc,) just to give them information and most times they won't take you seriously and maybe when they do, they ask you to bring vehicle to transport them, all manner of trash, and all you were trying to do is give an anonymous info. I've got lots of suspicious folks in my area, but we just keep quiet and watch, cos we can't trust the police to treat you as an anonymous informant. We pray God help us, Amen.
