A team of United States soldiers and agents of the Nigerian Department of State Service (DSS) have arrested terror suspects after a raid on Trademore Estate in the Lugbe area of Abuja.
This is coming after the US raised an alarm over terror threats and evacuated non essential embassy staff in Abuja.
According to the chairman Phase 3 Trademore Estate Adewale Adenaike, the combined team locked down the Estate and picked a couple of individuals of the community suspected of terrorist activities.
“It happened on Monday. We were in our houses when our estate was locked down,” he told The Cable
“Nobody was going out, nobody was coming into the estate. As the chairman, I came out to find out what was happening in the estate. I discovered it was a sting operation by our DSS and some American soldiers, and it was alleged, I repeat, it was alleged, right, that they were looking for somebody who had suspected terrorist activity, it was alleged as such
“As I was approaching the gate to my own street, the heavily masked DSS guys stopped me from going, and I told them I can’t stop because people are calling me for information so they will need to tell me why you are here, and that was how I got to know the alleged terrorist activity.
“And because they were DSS and with the American army I had nothing to say, I just said okay, they had to do what they had to do, and when they finished what they were doing, all we saw was to see them drive away with a couple of people from the estate.”
