Abuja – Members of the youth vigilante group have arrested four suspected members of the Boko Haram sect in Malari village of Konduga Local Government area of Borno State. 

A member of the youth  group, Adam Kolo told journalists that the suspects are locals of the village but were disowned and exposed by their family members. 

“All four suspects who are locals of Malari village were disowned and exposed by their families on return to the village. We arrested them after one of the suspects father handed him over to us, and then he led us into bush where others were arrested,” Kolo said.

Kolo disclosed that upon interrogation one of the suspects confessed to their affiliation with the killer group.

The suspects were paraded before the state Governor, Kashim Shettima, who visited the area to assess the level of damage during Monday's attack by the insurgents.

The governor said new camps would be opened in the area where hundreds of people have being displaced by the recent wave of attacks. 

He assured the villagers that his recent trip with President Muhammad Buhari to the United States and neighbouring Cameroon would soon yield positive results and that destroyed homes would be rebuilt.
