Six suspected members of terrorist sect, Boko Haram were arrested in Lagos over the weekend, the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) in the state has said.
This was disclosed by Lagos CJTF head, Mustapha Mohammed while speaking to journalists.
“One of their leaders that was hiding at a church in FESTAC town was arrested and handed over to security agents,” Mohammed said according to The Cable.
“You know we are from Borno State where these people also hail from and we know their communities. Our people back home do monitor them, and once they leave Maiduguri, we would be alerted so that we can be on the lookout.
“Once they arrive any community in Lagos, our members are always on ground to fish them out based on intelligence report and once they are arrested, we hand them over to security agencies for further investigation and prosecution,” he added.
Mohammed also said that two other suspects were arrested at Isheri-Ojodu Berger while the remaining three were caught at a hideout in Victoria Island.
