The Nigerian Army has announced the arrest of four suspected Boko Haram terrorists in Madaki village of Biu Local Government Area of Borno State.

A statement by the spokesman of the Nigerian Army, Sani Usman, said the suspects were arrested alongside “100 concealed motorcycles”.

The statement did not elaborate on how the motorcycles were concealed.

“Following the dislodgement and subsequent occupation of Boko Haram stronghold at Camp Zairo, Sambisa forest, the terrorists have been escaping the theatre to avoid capture and prosecution.

“It is in this vein that troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE intensified searches, patrols, raids and mop up operations.
