A suspected member of the dreaded Boko Haram sect who was on Tuesday evening at Ngomari ward ‘Bakin Borehole’ in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, arrested by volunteer armed youths, popularly called Civilian JTF and subsequently handed over to the Joint Task Force (JTF) in the state, Operation Restore Order has narrated how he snuffed life out of23
people within 48 hours.
In his chilling narration, the dare-devil member of the sect revealed that at a point in time, he had slaughtered a village head and police officers whom he felt were against the activities of the sect.
His confession came as some of his comrades in arms, who are in detention signified their intention to embrace amnesty, if offered by the federal government with the aim of helping government to stamp out terrorism in the state.
The suspected Boko Haram member, who was said to have relocated about a year ago to the area where he hired a room and lived discreetly, was smoked out by the Civilian JTF who had known him in his former abode.
A resident of Ngomari, who sought not to be named, told journalists yesterday that the sect member was arrested while trying to fetch water from a borehole.
According to him, the sect member was a resident of Gwange and his arrest was made possible when the youths who went looking for him arrested his younger brother who took them to Ngomari where the suspect was living.
“We were shocked when we heard that Civilian JTF came and arrested a sect member in our area. We have never imagined we could have somebody like that in our area because we have been living peacefully. We were even more shocked when the sect member confessed that he killed 23 people in two days,” the source said.
