NSCDCThe federal government has scored a major victory in its war against insurgency with the arrest in Borno State of a major recruiter for Boko Haram.
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, which made the announcement Sunday in Maiduguri, the state capital, said it arrested the 56-year-old Boko Haram kingpin in Askira Uba Local Government Area of Borno.
The Borno NSCDC Commandant, Ibrahim Abdullahi, said the suspect was apprehended at Mussa village last Tuesday.

The official said the NSCDC Borno command had since handed over the suspect to the Nigerian Army for further investigation.
