NIS confirms Arrest of ISIS supporters in Kano

THE Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has confirmed the arrest in Kano of two men linked to the planned issuance of Nigerian visa to a wanted ISIS chief, Ahmed Al Assir.

This was as the service denied playing any part in the process that led to the issuance of the visa to Al Assir in Lebanon.

According to the Comptroller-General of the NIS, Martin Abeshi, both men were immediately handed over to the National Security Adviser (NSA), General Babagana Monguno (retd).

Abeshi, speaking at a news conference in Abuja, said “from the record available, the Immigration Service did not issue that visa. It might be the officials of the Foreign Affairs ministry, because they also issue visa on our behalf.”
He, however, said the NIS went into action to arrest those connected to Al Assir immediately it gathered an intelligence that he was coming to Nigeria.
