A Boko Haram suspect arrested in Abuja has disclosed the possibility of pending attacks in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.
The suspect, Usman, made this known when he confessed to his captors. He confessed that a lot of colleagues are in the FCT to unleash mayhem.
AMAC advises vigilance
According to a statement by Kinglsey Madaki, spokesperson of the newly-established Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Marshal, the security agency that ‘arrested’ Usman, the suspect was found at Utako market with a Quran and a chaplet on his neck while trying to lobby people in the market.
Madaki said AMAC has handed over the suspect to the army at the Mabila Barracks. He called on residents to be watchful every time and report suspicious movements to security agencies. He said this will ensure the safety of live and property.
The army had earlier warned that boko haram insurgents were fleeing Sambisa forest fortress following last week’s invasion by its officers and men.
