Ten suspected key Boko Haram members at Bitta in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno have met their waterloo, while attempting to escape the onslaught of Nigerian Army troops on them.
A statement by the Nigerian Army Operations Media Coordinator, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, issued in Abuja, noted that the ten suspects were captured during the operation, which was conducted on October 9.
According to Colonel Iliyasu, many of those arrested have been identified to have operated combat vehicles during the infamous Boko Haram attack on Gwoza in 2014, like one Bukar Modu, who was on the high profile Boko Haram leaders wanted list published by the authorities of the Nigerian Army.
Colonel Iliyasu said the arrested suspects are now in the custody of the Nigeria Police in Birniwa, while troops continue to maintain vigilance in the area.
