Troops of 3 Battalion, of 22 Task Force Brigade  have made what the Nigerian Army described as “an unprecedented catch with the arrest of 4 Boko Haram terrorists Ameers (kingpins) at Rann, headquarters of Kala Balge Local Government Area” of Borno State.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said that the feat was achieved yesterday, disclosing that “the arrested kingpins specialised on various aspects of criminality to sustain the Boko Haram terrorists group in their areas.”

According to the Army Spokesman in a statement issued last night, “The four terrorists were arrested following a tip-off by well meaning members of the public.

“Subsequently, the troops conducted a cordon and search operation in the general area that led to the apprehension of the terrorist leaders, who contribute to the sustenance of the insurgency through their illegal trade specialisation.

“The arrested kingpins include Umara Mai Gyaran Rediyo (Radio Technician), Umaru Mai Nama (who specialise in cattle rustling and sales), Alifa Makinta (a specialist on stealing foodstuffs) and Balu Jugudum (in charge of stolen jewellries).

“Presently the suspects are undergoing interrogation.”
