The federal government yesterday confirmed the arrest of a man believed to be the master trainer of Boko Haram female suicide bombers by the Joint Task Force in Kano. The man identified as Ibrahim Ibrahim, was arrested in the Dala Local Government Area of Kano State during a raid.
The Coordinator of the National Information Centre and Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. Mike Omeri, made this revelation yesterday in Abuja. According to him, the suspect was arrested alongside 16 females who were reportedly undergoing training for suicide operations.
Omeri also appealed to commercial drivers and other transporters to avoid being used by the insurgents. "We wish to appeal to commercial drivers and other transporters not to accept unverified parcels from unknown persons for onward delivery to other locations. "Terror against one person or the country is terror against all, thus any individual who runs an errand for an insurgent is and must be considered an enemy of the people," he added.
