The Department of State Services said on Monday that it has arrested one Mudahsiru Jibrin, who it described as  the spiritual leader of Boko Haram cell in Kano.

It claimed that preliminary investigation conducted revealed that the suspect was also the mastermind of the shooting of some students at Government Secondary School , Mamudo village near Potiskum, Yobe State, in 2013.

Spokesman for the agency, Mr. Tony Opuiyo, who stated this in a statement in Abuja, said the agency has also made other arrests.

He said that following threat messages against some members of the Diplomatic Corps in Abuja and Lagos, the Service responded and subsequently apprehended one Aikhoje Moses, on August 19, at Azagha by-pass off the Benin–Asaba Expressway in Edo State.

Before his arrest, Moses was alleged to have threatened the diplomatic community in Nigeria, particularly the Consular-Generals of Switzerland and Denmark and their Embassies, warning them to leave the country.
