Ten Boko Haram Members Nabbed in Zaria

No fewer than 10 fleeing members of the terrorist group, Boko Haram, have been arrested in Zaria, Kaduna State.
The suspected Boko Haram members reportedly fled Sambisa Forest in Borno State and were apprehended by the Nigerian Police Force in Dogarawa area of Sabon Gari, Zaria.
Their arrest followed intelligence report, it was learnt.
Watchful members of the public were said to have noticed the strange looking terrorists, like fish out of water, and promptly alerted the Police.
“Some good Samaritans volunteered information to us on the activities of the suspects. “We immediately mobilised with about 100 mobile police and we successfully surrounded the house the suspects were living in. We were able to apprehend them and they are in our custody at our headquarters,” said Muhammad D. Shehu, who is the Police Area Commander in charge of Zaria.
He explained that preliminary interrogation had shown that the suspects were formally at Darul Islam in Niger state, but moved to Sambisa Forest to join Boko Haram when the settlement was sacked by the then state government.
Shehu said the ongoing onslaught by Armed Forces in the Northeast had forced the suspects to relocate to Zaria.
“Only God knows their mission here in Zaria, but my chat with them revealed that the guys were notorious.
“There was no sign of remorse in them. They were insisting that what they were doing was the right thing to do. This is why we are urging Nigerians to be wary of the people they live within their communities and report any suspicious movement to security agencies,” Shehu said.
