Suspected Boko Haram Member Arrested In Ondo





A suspected Boko Haram member identified as Mohammed Basha, has been arrested in Akoko south east local government area of Ondo state. This would be the second time a suspected Boko Haram member would be arrested in the last one week. Six days ago, one Ibrahim Idris Abawo, popularly known as Idiko, who was number 165 on the wanted list of Boko Haram commanders was arrested in the same area.

The Ondo state police public relations officer, Femi Joseph, in a statement released yesterday, said that Basha was arrested while he was loitering on Isua-Ifira Akoko road.

“When the suspect was arrested, he was interrogated and confessed that he was a member of the Boko Haram sect. He said his father is from Niger Republic while his mother is from Maiduguri in Borno state. He said when Maiduguri was hot for him, he ran to Nassarawa State last month and he left the state last Saturday and came down to the South-west to hide here. He also confessed that one Daffo is his team leader while Shekau is still the overall leader of the group.”

The police spokesperson said the suspect was still in the protective custody of the command for further interrogation.
