The DSS added: “The mastermind of the operation is Husseini MAI-TANGARAN, a well-known senior ISWA commander who has been on the service and Nigeria Army radar since 2012, when he spearheaded the armed attacks on the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone I, on 20th January, 2012, as well as other public places in Kano. 

“MAI-TANGARAN was also responsible for the deadly explosive attacks against worshippers at the Kano Central Mosque as well as an attack on a military formation in Yobe State in 2015, which claimed hundreds of lives.”
The statement said under the banner of the Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA) which he belongs, Mai-Tangaran had been preparing some members to carry out attacks on some areas of the country. DSS described the alleged terrorist as an expert in the manufacturing of improvised explosive devices.
“He was arrested in Kano, on 31st August, 2017, and further exploitation, led to the arrest of one Abdulkadir Umar MOHAMMED by the Service on 2nd September, 2017, at Kantin Kwari Market in Fagge LGA, Kano.
“MOHAMMED was a fighter of the sect who left the conclave of the group in the Sambisa forest, to join ranks with ISMAILA towards carrying out the attacks being planned by the group,” the statement added.
