Borno Youths arrest 31 Suspected Boko Harram Suspects in Maiduguri

Youths Vigilante group in
Borno State, otherwise known as Civilian
JTF, weekend, arrested 31 Boko Haram
suspects in various locations in Maiduguri
metropolis amidst ovations and
commendations from residents and
soldiers of the Joint Task Force, JTF.
The arrested sect members were
immediately handed over to the various
local sector commanders of JTF for
further interrogation and investigation.
The suspects were believed to have been
dislodged from their training camps at
Sambisa Games Reserves Forests and
Kirenowa, a border community with
Chad, after troops attacked the camps
following declaration of state of
emergency by President Goodluck
Jonathan.
According to the chairman of the
vigilante group, Abubakar Mallum, the
suspects were nabbed at NEPA Market
junction, Anguwar Doki, Shuwari II and
Gambouru market, among other areas
of Maiduguri metropolis.
JTF commended the youths in the joint
manhunt of fleeing Boko Haram
suspects.
Its spokesman, Lt.-Col Sagir Musa said:
"JTF commended these youths for
assisting our soldiers and police arrest
these terrorists' suspects among people
living in the metropolis.
"The youths have also renewed their
efforts in supporting the JTF in the current
operations."
Speaking on the youths' modus operandi
yesterday in Maiduguri, the group's
leader, Mallum said: "Although some
people call us 'Civilian JTF' in the
manhunt of Boko Haram suspects in
Maiduguri, we members of this Youths
Vigilante group operate at strategic
locations with ordinary sticks and
cutlasses."
