This is contained in a statement signed by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

He said troops of Operation Lafia Dole with assistance of Vigilantes on routine checks, identified and arrested Mohammed Zauro at Sabon Gari, Damboa Local Government Area, Borno.

"On Tuesday, August 2, at about 8.30 a.m., Preliminary investigation shows that the suspected terrorist kingpin was arrested as he was trying to flee to Birnin Kebbi, from Sambisa forest.

"The troops recovered a Gionee cell phone and a fake SAIE/JIBWIS identification card to perfect his escape and the sum of N7, 900," it said.

In a related development, troops also intercepted another suspected Boko Haram terrorist, Mr Lawal Aboi, along Damboa-Bale road.

He said Aboi was on his way to voluntarily surrender to the troops in Damboa because he was tired of fighting for no just cause.

Usman said both suspects were under further interrogation.
