Boko Haram Leader Arrested In Abuja At House Of Rep. Member’s Residence

boko haram leader arrested in abuja

Jan 13, 2013 – Boko Haram Leader Arrested In Abuja At Former House Of Rep. Member’s Residence In Gwarimpa

Another breakthrough came the way of security agents in their confrontation with members of the dreaded Jamaatu Ahlil Sunna Lidawati wal Jihad, otherwise known as Boko Haram, with the arrest of one of the sect’s suspected leaders, Hassan Pagi BUKAR, in the residence of a 2003-2007 member of the House of Representatives (names withheld).

The Boko Haram alleged leader was, according to sources, arrested along with the security guard of the erstwhile lawmaker.

Although the one-time member of the House of Reps was said to have been briefly arrested and interrogated, he has since been a daily guest of the security agency that effected the arrest.

The arrest was reportedly made in the Gwarimpa area of the Federal Capital territory, FCT, Abuja.

Sunday Vanguard learnt, last night, that the arrest and interrogation of Bukar had started yielding results.

For instance, the suspect reportedly disclosed, upon interrogation, that his brief as a sect member was to “carry out robbery activities by dispossessing members of the public of their cars”.

The security guard in the former House of the Reps member’s residence (who was described as a mere gateman) was said to have been “employed from Sokoto”.

During further interrogation of Bukar, Sunday Vanguard was made to understand that the suspect disclosed that the cars used for suicide bombings by the sect were stolen vehicles.

One of the very indicting statements of Bukar, the source said, “was that he implicated the former Rep by saying that he also buys some of the cars from him (Bukar) when they are stolen” [Vanguard Report]

    When God wants to act, who will say no. The blood of the innocent people killed in Churches keep appealing to God and surely, God will take vengence on their behalf. It is a fearful thing when God lay sierge for you. May the souls of all those who died through the brutal and deadly act of the wicked rest in peace.
