Four High Profile Boko Haram Members Arrested in Kogi

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, Tuesday, raised the alarm that Boko Haram remnants fleeing from Sambisa Forest in the North-east may have found a haven in his state, just as he disclosed the four high profile members of the sect have been arrested in Kogi. .
Bello made the disclosure in Abuja while speaking at the seventh edition of the National Security Seminar entitled: “Consolidating on the Gains of Counter Terrorism Operations in Nigeria’’.
He, however, warned that the insurgents had chosen a wrong place because he was ready to collaborate with the military to rout them out of the state.“Kogi is now a haven for Boko Haram, because many of them have relocated to my state.
“Just last night, four high profile Boko Haram members were arrested in Kogi by the military.
“I want to assure them that they have chosen a wrong place to relocate, because we will never allow them.
“We will work together with the armed forces to consolidate on the victory and gains recorded in the North-East,’’ he said.
The Governor commended the military for their efforts at “technically defeating’’ the insurgents in the North-East, and underscored the need to consolidate on the victory to avoid a relapse.
Bello said the government had actually done a lot in safeguarding lives and property and in reclaiming the territorial integrity of the country.
