On Friday, the DSS said it arrested two suspects — Yusuf Adamu and Abdulmuminu Haladu in Sokoto in connection with the plot.

The service had earlier arrested Bashir Mohammed, the facilitator of the Kano attack on June 20 at Unguwar Barnawa, Kaduna.

Shekarau Madaki was also arrested at Kumbatso Local Government Area of Kano State.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, DSS spokesman Tony Opuiyo said the objective of the arrested terrorists was to assemble explosives and use them on selected targets during the sallah celebration.

He added that items recovered from Mohammed's house were eight AK 47 rifles, 20 Ak 47 loaded magazines, 27 hand grenades and 793 rounds of live ammunition.

Others items found: one gas cylinder, three laptops, one Lifan motorcycle, one saloon car and one printer.
