SECURITY BREAK: Major Boko Haram Recruiter Nabbed

A major recruiter for the dreaded Boko Haram sect has been arrested in Borno, an official has said.

It was said that Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, arrested the 56-year-old Boko Haram kingpin in Aski Uba area of the troubled Borno state.

The Commandant of the NSCDC in Borno, Ibrahim Abdullahi, stated this in an interview with NAN.

He said, “Our men have made remarkable progress by arresting a Boko Haram kingpin.

The notorious kingpin was said to be a recruiter as well as supplier of arms and IEDs to Boko Haram terrorists.

“He confessed that his three children were also arrow heads of the Boko Haram sect.”

Mr. Abdullahi said the command had since handed over the suspect to the army for further investigation.

According to reports, Boko Haram insurgency has caused the death of over 20,000 in Northern Nigeria since 2009.

Recent successes by the Nigerian military have led to the recovery of territory initially seized by the insurgents in the North East.

Nigerian soldiers are still battling them on all fronts.
