Members of the civilian JTF in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital have arrested 5 members of the Boko Haram insurgents who came into Damboa to board vehicle at the Kano motor park (Tashan Kano). DailyPost gathered that the suspects were fleeing to Lagos, following stories that the military was ready to reclaim Damboa town.
A member of the JTF, Ahamadu Mamman told DailyPost that, some of the members of the Boko Haram sect who were fleeing Damboa town were being arrested by their members at motor parks within Maiduguri.
“We arrested 5 yesterday at Tashan Kano. I think 4 were killed and one of them who is alive is giving the soldiers information. We have stationed our boys at Tashan Journey and all the local spots where vehicles pick passengers, even along the roads and we have been succeeding,” Mamman said.
According to him, since the Boko Haram attacked Damboa and displace the people, it is obvious that war is imminent and some of them who don’t want to be caught up are seriously leaving the area.
He said, most of them who were arrested in Maiduguri and environs were all heading to the south west. “Almost all of them said, their destination was Lagos when we arrest them.”
