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.
“During one of such patrols to Madaki village in Biu Local Government Area, Borno State, troops of 27 Task Force Brigade stationed in Bara arrested 4 suspected fleeing members of Boko Haram terrorists on Wednesday afternoon whose names were given as Muazu Gogobir, Mamman Shuaibu, Muhammadu Muhammadu and Isah Ibrahim.
WThey were intercepted along with 100 concealed motorcycles at the outskirt of the town. The suspected Boko Haram terrorists are undergoing preliminary investigation,” Mr. Usman, a brigadier general, added.
