Officials of a security agency recently established by the Abuja Municipal Area Council, popularly known as AMAC Marshal, in the nation’s capital have arrested a middle-aged man suspected to be one of the fleeing members of Boko Haram.
In a statement issued on Tuesday night, December 27, by Kingsley Madaki, the spokesman of the AMAC Marshal, the suspect who gave his name as Usman, was apprehended around 4.30pm at Utako market shortly after he arrived the premises.
The suspect was apprehended “with a Qur’an and a chaplet on his neck while trying to lobby people in the market”.
However, the statement said the suspected Boko Haram member “confessed that there are many of his colleagues in the city”.
Recall that just a few days ago the commander of the Boko Haram insurgents fleeing capture by the Nigerian army after the fall of the Islamist sect’s stronghold Sambisa forest has been arrested in Lagos state.
The unnamed commander was arrested in the Ikorodu area of Lagos on Saturday, December 24.
