Army Arrests Men Who Procure Documents For Boko Haram
The Nigerian Army on Thursday paraded two suspects accused of forging the National Identity Card for Boko Haram members.
Makinta Umar and John Zakariya, operators of a business centre in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, were arrested, according to the army spokesperson in the state, Tukur Gusau, a Colonel, following confessions by a Boko Haram member in custody.
“A business centre around Post Office area in Maiduguri was identified as an accomplice of Boko Haram terrorists by producing National Identity Cards and other documents for the terrorists,” Gusau told reporters in Maiduguri.
“These documents enable the terrorists to move freely to various destinations and carry out their terrorists activities killing and inflicting hardships on the law abiding citizens of the country.”
Among items recovered from the suspects include computer laptops, memory sticks, and still camera.
