Nigeria MilitaryTroops Arrest Chibok Girls' Kidnap Leader

Nigerian Troops Arrest Chibok Girls' Kidnap Leader
Major-General Chris Olukolade, spokesperson of the Defence Headquarters (DHQ), the suspect was the head of a “terrorists’ intelligence cell” for Boko Haram under the guise of the self-defence youth vigilante group.

This Day also reports that soldiers told the Associated Press that some of their comrades belong to the extremist group.
“The arrest of the businessman … has also yielded some vital information and facilitated the arrest of other members of the terrorists’ intelligence cell who are women,” Olukolade was quoted to have said in a statement on Tuesday night.
The DHQ spokesperson, who did not reveal when the arrests were made or how many people were arrested, alleged that Ya’ari has since 2011 coordinated several deadly attacks on Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram, and spearheaded the May 2014 assassination of the Emir of Gwoza, a religious and traditional ruler who was targeted for speaking out against Boko Haram’s extremism.
While some of the girls have escaped, there are many others within the camp of the insurgents as speculation is rife that some of these girls may have been converted to suicide bombers by the Islamic sect.
Among other revelations by the defence troops was that of a woman arrested, Hafsat Bako, who confessed to coordinating the payroll for Boko Haram operatives, who were paid a minimum of N10,000 a job.
