Metronaija quoted the Department of State Services (DSS) as saying that the security forces are working to prevent “any possible attack and to ensure adequate security at the airports” in response, the agency said.

It said agents are still searching for militants who were directing the boy.

The boy was instructed to pass on details about “passenger screening, boarding procedures and other processes in the departure and arrival halls,” according to a statement from the DSS.
