No Comments

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Niger State Command, has arrested two suspected Boko Haram members in Minna, the state capital.

The suspects, Usman Al-Amin and Sanusi Ibrahim Bala, were arrested at different locations and are under surveillance.

The NSCDC Public Relations Officer, PRO, Ibrahim Yahaya, who confirmed the arrests to newsmen, said they are under surveillance by undercover officers due to some strange behavior exhibited by him.

He said, "The officers discovered that Al-Amin pretended to be insane during the day but reverted to his normal self at night when he would make several calls to his members elsewhere.

"Apparently, unaware that he was being monitored, he would make calls at night to persons we suspected were their members.

"It was at this point that it became clear to us that he is not a lunatic.

"The suspects are presently undergoing interrogation which would aid security agents in arresting other members of the group," Bala added.
