Nigerian Army Arrests Wanted Boko Haram Top Commander In Borno

 

Nigerian Army Arrests

The Nigerian army said its troops had arrested the top commander of Boko Haram, Yavi Moda, who was recently put on the wanted list by the forces.

In a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja, an army spokesman, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, said that troops also raided a warehouse of materials for improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Borno and Yobe states.

More than five years ago, the army put more than 100 terrorists on the wanted list. He also published their photos and pasted them in public places.

The commander's arrest takes place even after several members of the terrorist group repented and surrendered themselves and their families to the authorities.

The Boko Haram terrorists used this story to illustrate.

Boko Haram and ISWAP have been terrorizing the North-eastern Zone and the Lake Chad region for more than a decade.

Mr. Nwachukwu, in a statement, said that the army had seized more than 200 bags of fertilizer recently banned by the Federal Government because of its explosive nature.

Troops of the Joint Sector 2 Task Force of the North-Eastern Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) arrested a high-ranking member of Boko Haram. They raided a Boko Haram improvised explosive device materials center in the Damboa and Gashua local government areas in Borno and Yobe states, respectively. These operational achievements were recorded after active operations conducted by OPHK troops.

Following a tip, a wanted BH/ISWAP terrorist, one Yavi Modu, who was wanted, was captured on the Damboa-Vajiroko road.

In this regard, the troops successfully defeated a syndicate of producers of urea fertilizers, known for supplying terrorists with improvised explosive devices. The market is believed to be a notorious hub for IED materials for BHT/ISWAP.

These ISWAP criminals, faced with the reality of apparent exhaustion, are desperately acquiring improvised explosive devices to make explosive devices to unleash terror against innocent civilians to remain relevant and demonstrate their power.

During the arrest operation, a total of two hundred and eighty-one bags of urea weighing 50 kg were seized from warehouses in the market, and two well-known BHT distributors were also arrested.

Recall, the Government banned that urea fertilizer because of its use as the main component for producing improvised explosive devices by terrorists. The suspects and the seized materials are currently undergoing a preliminary investigation.

Commending the vigilance and steadfastness of the troops, Army Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General Farouk Yahaya, assured them of his support in the strong fight against the Boko Haram /ISWAP terrorists.
