The JTF In Maiduguri has arrested a commander of Boko Haram in the residence of a serving politician.The BH Commander ,Shuaibu Mohammed Bama has been making startling confessions according to the JTF spokesman, Lt Col Sagir Musa who failed to name the politician.
The statement announcing Bama’s arrest said :“The JTF have been successful in their ongoing anti-terror operations. A high-profile Boko Haram commander, one Shuaibu Mohammed Bama, who has been on the list of wanted terrorists, was arrested by task force troops in a serving politician’s house. He is in the custody of the JTF and assisting in the investigation and has since made startling revelations.”
But Newsdiaryonline.com has learnt that Bama was arrested in the residence of a serving Senator Ahmed Zanna.”He is another Borno Senator fingered in Boko Haram” an impeccable source said .Adding that “Boko Haram kingpin was arrested in his house”.But it was not clear if Zanna indeed has anything to do with Boko Haram .No officials statement have been made on this yet.
Earlier , Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume has been implicated ,arrested and charged to court for alleged romance with Boko Haram.The arrest of Bama in Zanna’s house may put further pressure on politicians henceforth.
