August 31, 2015 – Pictures: Faces Of 6 Out Of 19 Boko Haram Terrorists Arrested In Lagos, Enugu, Plateau, Kano & Gombe
DSS operatives have arrested 19 suspected Boko Haram terrorists responsible for a series of bloody attacks in the Northeastern part of Nigeria.
These jihadists were arrested between July 8 and August 24.
They are said to be commanders and frontline members of the sect who had played active roles in suicide attacks in Kano, Zaria, Jos and Potiskum, Yobe.
Most of them have fled the north to places like Lagos, Enugu in order to evade arrest and carry out more attacks.
One of the suspects, Usman Shuaibu (a.k.a Money), revealed that he coordinated the attacks with N500,000 which was provided by his Amir, Isa Ali, the DSS said.
“Shuaibu claimed that the said Isa Ali has links to the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, from where he collects monies to fund operations undertaken by their Markaz.
“Also, he revealed that he has participated in several Boko Haram attacks, including the attacks at Gwoza Divisional Police Station in 2014.
“Shuabu also admitted being the leader of the team of nine sect members that was dispatched from Sambisa Forest to carry out the attacks. He disclosed that four out of the nine of them were used as suicide bombers in executing all the suicide attacks,” the statement added.
Another suspect, Ahmed Mohammed aka Abubakar told DSS operatives that he was one of those preparing IEDs used in most of the suicide attacks in the Northeast.
