25 Boko Haram Members Arrested In Enugu!

No fewer than 25 persons suspected to be members of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram from Zamfara State were arrested by the police Thursday night while on their way to Enugu State.

But in a swift reaction to the arrest, the State Police Command said the arrested persons were believed to be hunters even though investigations were on to determine their true identities and their actual mission to the state.

It was gathered that the heavily armed suspects were intercepted around Okpuje while heading to Nsukka in a Zamfara State Government-owned Nissan bus with registration number XA 581 MRD.

When their bus was searched by the police on the spot, several locally made single and double barrel guns, machetes, daggers, axes, some powdered substances among other items concealed in fertilizer bags were reportedly discovered.
Both the suspects and their weapons were taken to Nsukka Police Division where they were detained.

The news of the arrest spread throughout the academic town of Nsukka yesterday causing panic among the residents some of whom trooped to the police station to catch a glimpse of the arrested persons and their weapons.


  1. The police should make sure they do a proper investiagtion on those criminals to discover there mission and their hideouts, bcos they are not hunters at all.
