A major milestone has been achieved in the fight against the dreaded Jamaatu Ahlil Sunna Lidawati wal Jihad, otherwise known as Boko Haram, with the arrest of one of the sect’s suspected leaders, Hassan Pagi Bukar, at the residence of a one time member of the House of Representatives (names withheld) in the Gwarimpa area of the Federal Capital territory, FCT, Abuja.
Informationng.com gathers that the Boko Haram alleged leader was arrested along with the security guard of the erstwhile lawmaker.
Although the former lawmaker was said to have been briefly arrested and interrogated, he has since been a daily visitor to the security agency that effected the arrest.
Bukar, we learnt has given some useful information on the modus operandi of the sect. For instance, the suspect reportedly disclosed, upon interrogation, that his brief as a sect member was to “carry out robbery activities by dispossessing members of the public of their cars”.
The suspect, who was described as a mere gateman in the former House of the Reps member’s residence, was said to have been “employed from Sokoto”.
According to a source, Bukar’s statement allegedly indicted his employer who he said “also buys some of the cars from him (Bukar) when they are stolen”
