One of the 100 suspected Boko Haram chiefs recently declared wanted by the Nigerian Army was today arrested as he attempted to flee, Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, announced minutes ago.

“Today at Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, a man suspected to be one of the declared wanted suspected Boko Haram terrorists, Chindo Bello, was apprehended by Aviation Security as he was boarding Aero Contractors’ Airline flight to Lagos,” Col. Usman said in a statement. “The suspect has since been handed over to the military intelligence for interrogation and prosecution,” he added.

The Nigerian Army thanked “those eagle-eyed and patriotic security agents and good citizens for the tip off that led to the arrest of the suspect.”

“The Nigerian Army would like to reiterate the need for all well meaning Nigerians and those residing in our great country to be more vigilant and assist security agencies with information about the declared wanted terrorists, their sponsors and other criminals in our midst,” the statement said.
