Nigeria Police have denied story on foreign media that leaders of Islamic State in Syria (ISIS) are sneaking battle-hardened jihadis from Syria into Nigeria to train terrorists for possible attacks in Britain.
Reacting to the story, Force Public Relations Officer (PRO) Jimoh Moshood said there is nothing like that, adding that the story is a fabrication that comes up once in a while but it always fizzles out because there is no truth in it.
He further said, "There is no need for Nigerians to panic as the Police and other security agencies are working tirelessly to ensure peace in the country. If there is any information, I assure you that we will know but for now, there is nothing like that. "
It would be recall that the UK Sun had reported that Leaders of IS are sneaking battle-hardened jihadis from Syria into Nigeria to train terrorists for possible attacks in Britain.
The report noted that, "Fanatics from the West African state are also being sent to the Middle East for training in a chilling 'exchange programme'".
"Insiders fear strong links between Nigeria and the UK will make it easier for IS to send its killers here to bring more death and destruction.
"Now more than 150 British troops are conducting counter-terror training with Nigerian forces in an attempt to stem the bloody tide -- and stop IS taking hold in the region."
