Operatives of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) have arrested a suspected top Boko Haram member in Ogun State, South West Nigeria.
The report said the development has created anxiety among residents of the area.
The source also narrated how the terror suspect eventually succumbed to the superior power of the DSS operatives, having initially put up a resistance.
The development is being fueled by the alleged plans to attack some states in the South-West by suspected terrorists.
However, a reliable source told our correspondent that the suspected Boko Haram leader was arrested a few days ago in the Ijaye area of Abeokuta.
The source said the suspect initially put up a resistance before bowing to the superior power of the DSS operatives.
