The Directorate of State Security Services Saturday afternoon at Nyanya the famous place where Boko Haram once bombed and killed many at its Bus terminal, caused panic as they came for suspected bandits.
The DSS men reportedly arrived at a cluster of market traders near Nyanyan Bridge at about 3.30 pm in two unmarked white Hilux trucks.
With their faces covered with masks and wielding sophisticated ammunition, they went straight into crowd, picked two persons and began firing gunshots in the air.
The operation lasted for about 20 minutes as the crowd dispersed and ran in different direction. The arrested persons were shoved into the waiting trucks and they drove away.
Sources said the two arrested persons were bandits from Katsina State. Efforts to confirm this from DSS spokesman, Dr. Ufunaya delayed our report yet he did not pick his calls.
