Troops of 120 Task Force Battalion, 27 Task Force Brigade, on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, killed three Boko Haram members who were trying to transport food and personal items to sect members in various hideouts.

The Acting Director Army Public Relations , Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman also revealed that a Boko Haram kingpin- Alhaji Bulama Budu, was arrested by the troops in conjunction with the civilian JTF (local vigilante group).

Usman said “Preliminary investigation shows that Alhaji Bulami Budu, who hailed from Aiwa village, Mafa Local Government Area,  was one of the Boko Haram terrorists detained at Giwa Barracks   before he escaped when his colleagues, Boko Haram terrorists attacked the facility and released all the insurgents in March 2014.

“His arrest would further lend credence to Nigerian Army investigation on the incidence about the number of casualties killed by the terrorists and those that escaped that day. He is currently being interrogated by the Joint Intelligent Committee.”

The Army spokesman also said in a statement that the terrorists who were trying to smuggle food items to their members ran away on sighting the military team.
