Enugu Police nab 25 suspected Boko Haram members.

The Police in Enugu State yesterday arrested 25 suspected Boko Haram members near Nsukka.

According to an eyewitness, the suspects appeared to be indigenes of states in the North-West and North-East regions of the country.

About 27 different guns concealed in bags were found on the suspects. Axes, daggers, several other weapons and bomb- making materials were also recovered from the suspects.

The suspects claimed the bags contained foodstuff.

“We were on our normal stop-and- search when we suspected the vehicle, and we asked them where they were coming from. They said they were Zamfara indigenes, coming to do business in Enugu State.

“At that stage, we ordered them to open their bags and when they did, we discovered that arms and ammunition were properly concealed in most of them. We are still wondering how they were able to beat all the security posts all the way from Zamfara to this place.” A policeman said

The police said the suspects might have been on a mission to cause mayhem at the 41st convocation ceremony of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, which held on Friday

The suspects said they were hunters in search of game. But the Police Public Relations Officer in Enugu State, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, stated;

“There is no way they could have been hunters when weapons of different sizes were found on them.”

Amaraizi noted that they would be arraigned in court on today.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) said;

“Suspects numbering about 25 joined with the driver and the conductor, there by bringing the number to 27, were intercepted on Okpuje- Nsukka Road in a commuter Hiace bus with registration no Zamfara XA 581MRD .

“After interrogation, the suspects said they were coming from the northern part of the country and were heading for Uzouwani in Enugu State for a hunting expedition.”

  • Still wondering how an 18-seater bus could contain 25-26 people,and the police and road safety officials all the way from Zamfara through Kastina down to Abuja and Kogi could not intercept them and query the overloading? Could there be a conspiracy by these northern abokis not stopping there ?BH brothers?**just asking*

  • The coincidence of these BOKOM HARAM people at Nsukka/Enugu state during OBJ visit to UNN is too much. Were they going to hunt down OBJ or get their UNN degree papers? Pls call ATIKU/TINUBU to throw in some light since they promised to make Nigeria ungovernable if they do not make the presidency. Buhari/Bakare may also know something since they do not believe in the rule of law. Lastly IBB may be the kingpin since he announced same day that he was quitting politics for Terrorism – what exactly did he say he will be doing with his lonely life? The police/road safety should start arresting the people traveling 20-100 persons in open overloaded trailers/lorries as animals north/south, east/west sea/desert. Do these religious extremists go to Mecca/Rome/Jerusalem in over loaded trailers?

  • Weldone NPF Enugu state zone, may God keep on blessing and waxing u strong in ur excellent job in Jesus name A- men. Pls don’t let them free b/c they were sent by their useless and idiot sponsors to come and bomb Enugu so that it will be that they have panatrated east but they don’t know that the Jesus Christ we serve is greater than mohamed that tells them to kill. They deserve to be killed don’t, grant them mercy nor to take them to court, they will be free. Let them call buhari, atiku, ibb, tinubu and shakarau that said nigeria will not be governable b/c a muslim did not win president.

  • God bless all the NPF in enugu state 4 that gud job,and kill them all no marcy 4 them bcox there are killing our people like fish .
