A Boko Haram kingpin Jarasu Shira was on Wednesday morning arrested in Damboa, Borno state, Daily Trust has reported.

The report said that Shira was arrested at a motor park at about 8:30 a.m. along with 10 other suspected members of the group who escorted him to Damboa to connect a vehicle to Biu enroute to Lagos. “They were arrested by men of the vigilante (Civilian Joint Task Force, JTF) who are providing support to the Nigeria military battling the militant group,” the report said.

It quoted a source who didn’t want to be named as saying that Shira, who goes by the alias Jarido, is number one on the new list of wanted men by the Nigeria military. The terrorist chief was reportedly disguised in a cowboy outfit as at the time of his arrest.

“He is believed to be the leader of the Boko Haram militants in Damboa, Chibok and Askira Uba local government areas of Borno State,” Daily Trust said, adding that the suspects have been handed over to military authorities in Biu, Borno State.
