Troops of 23 Brigade of Operation Lafiya Dole have arrested three suspected Boko Haram terrorists at Ngurore, Borno state.
The suspects, Adam Yagga, Musa Kamsulum and Abba Djidoum, hail from Darajimal in Bama local government area of Borno state, according to army spokesperson, Brig.-Gen. Texas Chukwu.
He said one of the suspects, Abba Djidoum, with series of gunshot wounds on his thigh, confessed to have operated with the Boko Haram insurgents on fringes of Izza, Wudula and Blakule in Bama local government area of the state.
According to Chukwu, the suspect is undergoing preliminary investigation with 23 Brigade Provost Company.
“We commend patriotic members of Civilian vigilante (Civilian JTF) for their resilience and continued cooperation with troops, and urge members of the public to emulate their vigilance and security consciousness by reporting any suspicious persons or objects to the nearest military location,” he said.
He urged members of the terrorist group to take advantage of the recent federal government’s programme to repent and surrender to the authorities.
