Another fleeing member of the Boko Haram sect has been arrested in Abuja.
He was said to have been arrested by officials of a security agency recently established by the Abuja Municipal Area Council, also known as AMAC Marshal.
A statement issued on Tuesday night in Abuja by the spokesman of the AMAC Marshal, Kingsley Madaki, said the suspect who gave his name as Usman, was apprehended at exactly 4:30 pm at Utako market shortly after he arrived the premises.
Madaki disclosed that the suspect was apprehended “with a Qur’an and a chaplet on his neck while trying to lobby people in the market.”
The statement said the suspected Boko Haram member “confessed that there are many of his colleagues in the city.”
The agency, therefore, appealed to residents of AMAC and the FCT to be vigilant and report any suspicious movement to AMAC Marshal personnel and other security agencies.
Recall, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai said on Saturday that a top Commander of the sect was arrested in Lagos after troops sacked Sambisa Forest, a strong hold of the deadly Islamic sect.
