The Borno State Po­lice Com­mand has announced the ar­rest of two of the no­to­ri­ous mem­bers of Boko Haram who were de­clared wanted by the se­cu­rity agen­cies.

The state Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Mr. Damian Chukwu, made the an­nounce­ment to jour­nal­ists yes­ter­day in Maiduguri while parad­ing sus­pected crim­i­nals ap­pre­hended by his per­son­nel in var­i­ous oper­a­tions.

He said the sus­pects were nabbed be­tween June and July at Ngo­mari air­port area, Maiduguri and Nasarawa vil­lage of Dawakin Tofa Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Kano state fol­low­ing in­tel­li­gence re­port.

The CP dis­closed the names of the sus­pected ter­ror­ists as Umar Abatcha of Muna Garage of Jere LGA and Al­haji Mal­lam Mo­hammed of Mainok town, Kaga LGA re­spec­tively.

“They have vol­un­tar­ily con­fessed to be mem­bers of the ter­ror­ists group and nar­rated some of the atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted. As soon as pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­cluded, the sus­pects would be handed over to the Nige­rian Army for dis­creet in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” CP Chukwu said.
