Nigerian terror suspect arrested in Germany

German police in overnight raids arrested an Algerian and a Nigerian man suspected of planning an Islamist attack, authorities said Thursday.

More than 450 officers took part in the mass raids targeting 12 locations, mostly in the central city of Goettingen in Lower Saxony state, they said.

Police investigating the fundamentalist Islamist community had acted on information pointing to “a possibly imminent terrorist attack”, said the city’s police chief Uwe Luehrig.

They detained the two men, a 27-year-old Algerian and a Nigerian, 23, who had both lived for some time in the city with their families.

Germany was hit by several attacks last year claimed by the Islamic State group — the most deadly of them a December 19 truck rampage though a Berlin Christmas market that claimed 12 lives.

German security services say they consider some 550 known Islamists as potentially dangerous and capable of carrying out an attack.

German federal prosecutors, in charge of terrorism cases, have struggled with a flood of investigations against suspects and returned fighters from Syria and Iraq, news magazine Der Spiegel reported last weekend.

Chief prosecutor Peter Frank urgently requested personnel support from Germany’s 16 regional state services, complaining in a letter that his national-level service had “reached the limit” of what it could do, the magazine reported.

    The Cowards in the Central Intelligence Agency thought they could push China around. The Chinese pulled out Nuclear weapons and Trump was told by the CIA to go begging China. These are the types of Animals running the CIA, a wild zoo.

    Meanwhile, in Nigeria, President Buhari has been poisoned by the CIA and is now in a Western hospital where the CIA doctors will complete the murder.

    This is the second leader of Nigeria that would be killed by the CIA. The first being Yar’Adua who was given a hypoxic gas mixture under anesthesia making him brain dead.

      Absolute trash. It’s China that begs the US always. You read a news item popped up by foolish American press that’s afraid of Trump and will stop at nothing to discredit his administration and you sing along with them on nothing that concerns you. The picture of missile battery weapons they showed was nothing better than what the US have. In a war today in the present technological level, America can only be beaten by God, itself or Israel. The fear America may have for China is in the large Chinese population and hence its large size of the military but the several noise from the American media is a well known trash. What does killing your Nigeria’s president benefit the US? You don’t make sense. You’ve only shown you hate the US so much. All these conspiracy theories put up can only hurt you the more. Please study international politics and events properly and don’t be confused with simple political draughts.
