Nigerian linked to ISIS arrested in Germany

A 29-year unnamed Nigerian, alongside an Iraqi, aged 46, were on Thursday detained by the German police on suspicion of having links with Islamic State, ISIS and of planning ‘a serious act of violence,’ Reuters reports.

This was made known by a German police prosecutor, Thomas Steinkraus-Koch in a statement yesterday.

According to the statement, security sources have provided information that both suspects could have been in contact with members of ISIS.

“Police did not immediately find any suspicious items, but are pursuing investigation.

“The suspects were detained in the Bavarian capital Munich and nearby Fuerstenfeldbruck,” the statement said, adding there had been no forthcoming threat to the public.”

The police have, however, declined to give any more details.

According to the police, the names of the suspects would not be revealed until investigations were completed.

“There would be no further statements before Friday,” the police was quoted to have said.
