A 29-year-old Nigerian has been arrested in Germany for an alleged connection to the Islamic state in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
According to a report on Reuters, German police detained him on Thursday, alongside an Iraqi, accusing them of planning “a serious act of violence”.
Thomas Steinkraus-Koch, a prosecutor, said security sources provided information that both men could have been in contact with members of ISIS.
The suspects were detained in the Bavarian capital Munich and nearby Fuerstenfeldbruck, police said in a separate statement, adding there had been no imminent threat to the public.
Police did not immediately find any suspicious items, but were pursuing their investigation, they added.
Islamic State released a video on Tuesday suggesting it might carry out further attacks in the West, naming London, Berlin and Rome as possible targets.
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for bombings that killed 31 people in Brussels in March and attacks in Paris in November that killed 130.
