A middle-aged man suspected to be one of the fleeing Boko Haram fighters has been arrested by officials of a security agency recently established by the Abuja Municipal Area Council popularly known as AMAC Marshal in Abuja.
A statement issued on Tuesday night by the spokesman for the AMAC Marshal, Kingsley Madaki, said the suspect who gave his name as Usman, was nabbed at 4.30pm at Utako Market.
According to him, the suspect was apprehended “with a Qur’an and a chaplet on his neck while trying to lobby people in the market.”
The statement said the suspected Boko Haram fighter had, however, “confessed that there are so many of his colleagues out there in the city who are out to unleash mayhem on innocent residents.”
While calling on the residents of the FCT to be vigilant and report suspicious movements to AMAC Marshal personnel, Madaki said the organisation was out to ensure the safety of properties and lives.
While handing over the suspect to the Nigerian Army at the Mabila Barracks, the Marshal-General of AMAC Marshal, Kasim Chicha, said the organisation was out to assist the conventional security agencies in the council.
Everyone should be careful, the fleeing terrorists and infiltrating different cities.
