Ondo State Police denies recipient of report Facts emerged on how the police in Ondo State allegedly leaked the intelligence reports Boko Haram elements planned to attack the state.
Top security sources claimed that some policemen benefiting from the proceeds of organised crimes leaked the Department of State Services’ secret report made available to the police command in Ondo.
It is reported that Boko Haram terrorists are in the border towns of the state planning to rob commercial banks and attack a town. The insurgents are planning to strike on the major roads in Owo and Ikare by kidnapping passengers for ransom in order to raise funds for their terror campaign.
Soon after the report, it is learnt that a copy of the intelligence report by the DSS to the Ondo police command surfaced on social media platforms. A top and reliable security source in the DSS said the report is accurate.
It is really a big issue that an intelligence report and information of such can be leaked out, the source noted.
Also, a senior military officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, at the Owena Barracks of the 32 Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Akure, confirmed the planned Boko Haram attacks.
