The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has arrested three suspected Boko Haram members.
Addressing reporters in Miaduguri, the state capital on Wednesday, the Borno State Commander of the NSCDC, Ibrahim Abdullahi, said the three suspects were arrested at the Maiduguri cattle market in the state capital.
According to the NSCDC Commander, two of the suspects were drivers of the insurgent groups, while one of them was their agent who was based in Maiduguri.
He said, “You will recall that we had raised alarm that there are some agents of Boko Haram who are aiding activities of Boko Haram, especially at the Maiduguri cattle market known as ” Kasuwar Shanu.
“They normally transport cows from Boko Haram and sell them for the insurgents. The bad elements will then transport the proceeds to Boko Haram in their hideouts.”
This development comes at a time when Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, raised the alarm over the high in flock of Boko Haram members in the state.
