Abdullahi Mustapha Berende, who is saccused of spying for Iran in Nigeria with a view of attacking some targets, was paraded by State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja.
The SSS claims Berende is suspected of working with some Iranian elements to operate a high profile international terrorist network and is alleged to have given the names of several prominent Nigerians, including former President Ibrahim Babangida, a former Sultan of Sokoto and Ibrahim Dasuki as targets of the attack being planned by his Iranian handlers.
The objective seems to be that if the Nigerians are attacked, it could possibly provoke and unsettle the West.
A 50-year-old man has told security operatives that he was trained by Iranian officials to spy for them and attack some Israeli targets in Nigeria.
The SSS also paraded two people Olayinka Saka and Saheed Aderemi Adewumi, who they claimed Mr. Berende recruited as accomplice, other members of the Iranian spy network are reportedly at large.
