Nigeria’s State Security Service announced Tuesday the arrest last month of an alleged recruiter for the Islamic State group (ISIS) of Iraq and Syria, the Premium Times reported. Abdussalam Enesi Yunusa was arrested Jan. 17 in Kano, Nigeria.

Yunusa was reportedly an undergraduate student at the Federal University of Technology in Minna, Nigeria, where he was working toward earning a degree in Information and Media technology, according to a statement provided by the State Security Service.

“Prior to his arrest, Yunusa had completed arrangements to embark on a journey to join an ISIS terrorist training camp in Libya, with other Nigerians whom he recruited for the Islamic State,” according to the statement from State Security Service official Tony Opuiyo.
