A suspected member of the Boko Haram sect, Giraima Umaru Suri of Bulunkutu Kasuwa Maiduguri, has been arrested by the Police in Ogun State.
Suri was arrested in Isheri Kara area of Ifo Local Government Area yesterday, a statement by state police spokesman Muyiwa Adejobi said.
Adejobi said the police was able to make the arrest due to its robust intelligence gathering.
“The suspect who confessed to have fled Maiduguri to the south west of the country due to aggressive manhunt placed on the members of the sect by security operatives in Maiduguri was picked up by police operatives in Ogun State on a tip off,” he said.
“Giraima Umaru has confessed to the police to have participated in the killing of many innocent Nigerians before the declaration of the state of emergency in three states including Borno state by the Federal Government.
“The command hereby appreciates the good people of Ogun State for their collaboration and sharing of information that make the police proactive in preventing crimes and criminality in the state.”
