He added that the declaration of 100 suspected Boko Haram terrorists had started to pay the desired dividend as one of them was arrested as he attempted to flee.

“A man suspected to be one of the declared wanted suspected Boko Haram terrorists, Chindo Bello were apprehended by Aviation Security as he was boarding Aero Contractors’ Airline flight to Lagos. The suspect has since been handed over to the military intelligence for interrogation and prosecution,” Usman said.

He reiterated the need for all well meaning Nigerians and those residing in the country to be more vigilant and assist security agencies with information about the declared wanted terrorists, their sponsors and other criminals in their midst. –
