The police in a statement on Tuesday said it has arrested the “chief butcher” of the dreaded Boko Haram sect, in Balmo Forest, Bauchi State.
It identified him as Mohammed Zakari.
According to the statement by Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, he was arrested along Darazo-Basrika Road.
Mba said Zakari was fleeing from Balmo Forest following the massive onslaught by security operatives.
He was arrested on Saturday.
Mba said, “The suspect, who hails from Kaigamari Village, Daptchari in Darazo Local Government Area, Bauchi State, is the self-styled “chief butcher” of the insurgent group at the Balmo Forest Camp and is linked with the recent slaughter of seven people, including women and children.
“Findings as well as disclosures from the suspect will assist the law enforcement agencies in tracking down some other members of the terror cell.
“The suspect whom investigation reveals was tutored in the art of insurgency at Gombe Forest under the leadership of a fleeing insurgent, one Abba Taura, and moved to Balmo Forest only three months ago, is discovered to have actively participated in the April attack against Customs officers at Kari Town, along Maiduguri Road, Bauchi State.
“although the war on terrorism is unrelenting, it is certainly not insurmountable and must be won with the cooperation of all”.
