A Boko Haram suspect, who is number 105 on the wanted list of the Nigerian Army, has been arrested by troops in Yobe State.
The suspect, Muhammed Bulama, was arrested yesterday alongside two other suspected Boko Haram terrorists, Ardo Abba Muhammed and Muhammadu Kaigama.
A statement issued by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman on Wednesday, said the suspects were arrested in Azare community, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
According to the Army spokesman, they were arrested riding on horseback and bicycle shepherding some sheep towards a market.
He added that during preliminary investigation, Bulama confirmed his photograph on the wanted list and further revealed that he specialized on rearing animals for the Boko Haram group.
Col. Usman said Bulama further confessed that they came to the village to sell the animals as they had ran out of cash in their hideout and would also get some food items back to for the upcoming Sallah festivity.
