Nigerians charged with planning attacks on Israeli targets


Two Nigerian citizens were charged in their country with working for an Iranian terror cell to plan attacks on Israeli targets.

The men, who were arrested in February by Nigeria’s secret police, were accused in the charge sheet unveiled Wednesday in federal court of being members of a “high profile terrorist network,” Reuters reported.

The suspects are accused of working to provide information to their Iranian handlers about locations frequented by Israelis and Americans.

They are identified as Abdullahi Mustapha Berende and Saheed Oluremi Adewumi. A third uncharged and unnamed suspect also was arrested in February.
