Scores of members of Boko Haram have been arrested in Kano within the few days of Sallah festivities, Kano state Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, revealed.

Speaking at the annual Hawan Nassarawa yesterday, Governor Ganduje said several arms and ammunitions had also been recovered from the dreaded insurgents that invaded the state to launch attacks on innocent people during Sallah celebrations.

Ganduje explained that “The arrested insurgents have been taken to Abuja this morning (yesterday) for further investigation. Possibly, these insurgents were from Sambisa forest and their plan was to launch another coordinated attack on Kano during Sallah celebrations.”

The governor said the recent arrests followed a series of security tips-off, saying, “The security agencies have received reports of suspicious movements of strange faces in the state. Having got the information, the security personnel intensified intelligence gathering and they did not relent in their efforts until they foiled the evil mission and arrested the insurgents.”

The insurgents, Daily Trust gathered were arrested at various locations within the state metropolis.

He said the successes being recorded by security agencies in the fight against insurgency might not be unconnected with commitment of the federal and state governments in the crusade against the security challenges affecting the country.
