At least 320 persons, suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect, were allegedly  arrested, yesterday, by the Rivers State Police  Command.

The suspects, who were allegedly coming from Jigawa State, were said to be in 20 buses when they were arrested at the boundary between Rivers and Imo states.

Details are still sketchy though, but sources say the suspects were being quizzed by the Police at the state headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department.

“They searched each of them. And also searched the buses they came in, after which the Police asked them to write statements,” a source told Vanguard.

Speaking on the arrest, Rivers State Police Commissioner, Mr Joseph Mbu, said the state Police command would not speak on the issue until investigation was concluded.

“It is a top security issue. I don’t know who gave you the information and I will not want to ask. But there can be no comment for now from the state Police Command until we finish investigation. I will make no comment,” Mbu told newsmen.
