A kingpin of the Boko Haram terrorist group arrested yesterday by the military Joint Task Force (JTF) in Maiduguri, North-West Nigeria, is now singing like a bird.

Shuaibu Mohammed Bama, who is described as a high-profile Boko Haram commander, “has since made startling revelations,” according to JTF spokesman Lt. Col Sagir Musa.

Musa (shown in photo) in a statement in Maiduguri disclosed that Bama was nabbed during a raid on the home of an unnamed frontline politician believed to be a senator.

Said the JTF spokesman: “The JTF have been successful in their ongoing anti-terror operations. A high-profile Boko Haram commander, one Shuaibu Mohammed Bama, who has been on the list of wanted terrorists, was arrested by task force troops in a serving politician’s house. He is in the custody of the JTF and assisting in the investigation and has since made startling revelations.”

News Express reports that Maiduguri is the Boko Haram headquarters and scene of the fiercest battles in the war against the Islamic sect which has killed over 3,000 people since it launched its terrorist campaign in 2009.
