Nigeria: Three More Suspected Attackers of Ado Bayero Arrested By JTF

Three persons were arrested during a raid at the hideout of suspected terrorists in the Dorayi quarters in Kano State.

One of those arrested is suspected to be the mastermind behind attack on the Emir of Kano's convoy, which led to the death of four of his aides and injured two of his sons.

Security forces recovered four AK-47 rifles and many rounds of ammunition.

At the time of this report, the operation is still on-going. Sources have revealed that the hideout was pulled down following the raid.

The Emir, Ado Bayero, is currently receiving treatment in London, alongside his two sons and his aides. He had reportedly received glass cuts to his forehead from the wind shield of his car during the attack.
