The Nigeria Army has paraded some suspected Boko Haram insurgents arrested late yesterday while attempting to cross from Jigawa State to Yobe State in North-East Nigeria. Operation Salama operatives attached to Jigawa State in the North-West arrested the suspect with 40 jerry cans filled with 33, 000 litres of petrol suspected to be transported to the notorious Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

Parading the suspects in Birniwa Local Government Area of Jigawa State, Commander of the 3 Brigade Nigeria Army Kano, Brig. Gen. Hamisu Hassan, said the suspects were arrested at a filling station near Jigawa-Yobe boarder axis with additional 180 empty jerry cans.

Our Kano correspondent, Idris Jibrin reports that the suspects were.

According to the Commander, the fuel tanker with Registration Number KANO WDL 270 SL and a Land Cruiser Jeep with registration number LAGOS AQ 432 AAA were recovered from the suspects, some of whom are from the neighbouring Niger Republic.

Brig. Gen. Hassan said that Operation Salama will not take any chances in supporting the effort of the combat troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in the North-East, adding that the army will not rule out possibilities of Boko Haram sending their suppliers to get fuel in the North-West due the military’s fire power in the North-East.

Brig. Gen. Hamisu said the suspects will be handed over to other relevant agencies for appropriate investigation and prosecution where necessary, as joint security forces continue their aggressive patrol along all border towns, exit and entry points from the North-West to the North-East.
