Officers of the Nigerian army have revealed that the wife of a Boko Haram kingpin who was arrested during a raid on the terrorists’ camp in Borno state is giving out valuable information to them.
Colonel Tukur Gusau, spokesman of the 7 Division of the Nigeria Army, made this disclosure via a statement issued recently, in which he said that the arrest was made during operations in Kukawa and Nganzai local government areas of Borno state.
Leadership reports that troops of the 115 Task Force Battalion under 7 Brigade Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) during a patrol and raid on the Boko Haram terrorists’ hideout, arrested a woman presumed to be wife of the Boko Haram leader.
The woman was caught with four children she had with the unnamed Boko Haram kingpin, after he took to his heels following a gun battle with soldiers.
It is known that most Boko Haram ‘amirs’ are allowed to move around with their families.
Yesterday, the Nigerian army said it had cleared Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) buried along the road that links new Marte-Dogongida-Kerenowa in Borno.
