Muhammad also told newsmen that the sect members were relocating from Sambisa forest because of the Nigerian Army operation.
Daily Post reports that Muhammad said “Some good Samaritans volunteered information to us on the activities of the suspects. We immediately mobilised with about 100 mobile police and we successfully surrounded the house the suspects were living in. We were able to apprehend them and they are in our custody at our headquarters.”
Adding that “Only God knows their mission here in Zaria, but my chat with them revealed that the guys were notorious. There was no sign of remorse with them. They were insisting that what they were doing was the right thing to do. This is why we are urging Nigerians to be wary of the people they live within their communities and report any suspicious movement to security agencies.”
The police boss also told newsmen that the sect members were relocating from Sambisa forest because of the Nigerian Army operation.
