DSS now claims to have foiled NDAvergers plan of bombing oil pipelines regardless of their tweets
The Department of State Security Service, DSS, has recorded a major success against criminals posing serious challenges to the nation through attacks on oil installations and kidnap of prominent Nigerians for pecuniary gains.
The DSS said last night that it foiled fresh planned attacks on vital oil facilities in the Niger Delta region by arresting the masterminds of the onslaughts before they were able to carry out their nefarious actions. A statement made available to Saturday Vanguard in Abuja by the security agency and signed by Tony Opuiyo, said the DSS also arrested no fewer than 15 kidnap kingpins from various parts of the country, including the man who kidnapped the Personal Assistant to the Transport Minister, Igo Chinda.
The DSS said all the arrests were made in the month of June through what it called ‘series of special tactical operations’, which led to the decimation of the criminals’ hideouts. Among the key elements arrested for planning to unleash series of bombing of oil facilities in the Niger Delta region, were one Christian Oluba alias Sensor, who the DSS described as a militant with the Niger Delta Avengers.
NDA, yesterday, denied that two suspects, Christian Oluba, alias Sensor, and Selky Kile Torughedi, arrested by the Department of Security Service, DSS, in connection with foiled attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta, were its members.
NDA, in a statement, by its spokesperson, self-styled Brig Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, said: “Reports that two suspects, Mr Christian Oluba, alias Sensor, and Selky Kile Torughedi, arrested by DSS, are alleged members of Niger Delta Avengers is laughable. The fact is that they are sleeper agents of the DSS sent after the Niger Delta Avengers.
“If DSS is denying this, let them allow the suspects to speak to the press. We (Niger Delta Avengers) do not have any connection with these boys. We dare the DSS to allow the boys to tell the world their side of the story.
Soon,we'll indeed know the truth,Nigerians deserve the truth!!.
