Troops operating in the North-Eastern part of the country have arrested one Boko Haram suspect, Muhammed Bulama , who is on the wanted list number 105, on Tuesday 6th September 2016 in Yobe State.
This was contained in a statement signed by the acting director of Army Public Relations, Col Sani Usman yesterday in Abuja.
Usman said Bulama was arrested alongside with two other suspected Boko Haram terrorists; Ardo Abba Muhammed (elder brother to Bulama as claimed) and Muhammadu Kaigama, in Azare community, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State, with the help of the local vigilantes in the town.
He said the suspects were arrested riding on horseback and bicycle shepherding some sheep towards market.
According to the statement, preliminary investigation revealed that the suspected terrorist personally confirmed his photograph on the wanted list and further revealed that he specialised on rearing animals for the terrorist group.
The statement said he further confessed that they came to the village to sell the animals as they had run out of cash in their hideout and would also get some food items back too for the upcoming Sallah festivity.
