One of the Boko Haram suspects in white shirt is No.5 on the Nigerian Army wanted list and three other suspected members of the group have been arrested by troops of Operation Lafiya Dole.
The vehicle conveying the suspect and three other members of the civilian vigilante (Civilian Joint Task Force), was intercepted by troops on Thursday 29th March 2018 at the Forward Operations Base along Kano – Azare road, in Bauchi State. On interrogation, the Civilian Joint Task Force members claimed to have arrested the suspects in Lagos and they are taking them to Department of State Service (DSS) office in Maiduguri for further investigations.
Efforts are being made to contact DSS office in Maiduguri for possible confirmation of the Civilian Joint Task Force claims. Meanwhile, troops have intensified search on the major highways to arrest any fleeing Boko Haram terrorists.
