Boko Haram members are in Lagos! The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, revealed that some members of the sect have been picked up in Lagos. He made this known during a recent newspaper interview. He also said that every part of the country including Lagos, is not safe from these terrorists. He said: “There is nowhere you will not find Boko Haram – even in Lagos here, there are Boko Haram (members). In Kaduna, there is Boko Haram. There are more across the Northeast. Many have been arrested here in Lagos. We have been tracking them. We arrest them and take them into custody.” The appearance of the sect in Lagos has been linked to the current ban on tricycles (Keke) and motorcycles (Okada) in Lagos. In an exclusive interview with Pulse, Lagos state government officials revealed that the fear of terrorists invading Lagos partly informed the decision to ban the okada and keke in six local governments in the city center.
