The Police subsequently arrested five, in Gayawa village of Ungoggo Local Government Area of the state.

According to the Kano commissioner of police, Mr Rabi’u Yusuf, “The suspects were arrested following on an active intelligence from the Nigeria police force indicating the remnants of the Boko Haram group who escaped from Sambisa forest have started regrouping in some states of the north including Kano state.

“It is because of the concern to ensure that they don’t attack any location in any state, that the inspector general of police set up a joint police special team under the supervision of CP Kano command which launched a trail mission on the remnant of Boko Haram group in various locations in Kano and its environs.
