About 250 aliens were, yesterday, arrested by a combined security operatives comprising the Military, Police and Department of State Security, DSS, in Lagos, as part of strategy to nip in the bud infiltration of terrorists into the state.


The raid, as gathered, was carried out at Gatangowa market at Abulegba, along the Lagos/Abeokuta expressway between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.

Vanguard gathered that the Lagos State government had charged security agencies in the state to go back to the drawing boards and map out strategies that would check excesses of terrorists as well as beef up their operational might

Sources at the DSS told Vanguard that the arrested aliens were discovered to have entered the country without the necessary papers. Sources further informed that although that was not enough to libel them terrorists, it was just a measure put in place to check the influx of likely terrorists into Lagos State.

Although DSS sources did not disclosed whether any explosive was recovered from the arrested persons but informed that they would be repatriated to their respective countries,with a stern warning never to return without proper documentation.

“ This is a collaborative effort by men of the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy , Police and our men. This is just the beginning. It is an ongoing raid and we will not relent until we are satisfied with our intelligence report”,DSS sources said.
