This morning, while in my shop, I was called upon that a Boko Haram suspect was in our midst, because everyone in the community had been duly notified that when we see any strange face, we should always question the person.
A combined raid of the Ijora 7-Up area of Lagos, by the military patrol team-OP Mesa and the Department of State Security, has led to the arrest of a suspected Boko-Haram member.
According to The Nation Newspapers, two AK47 rifles, and some explosive devices were recovered from the suspect, Abdullahi Adamu.
Speaking on the matter, the Oba of Ijora community, Oba Fatai Ojora said “We have been calling on the state government to do something about this. This is the second time we will arrest Boko Haram suspects in this community and nothing has been done on that. The one we caught now had even admitted that he is a terrorist. You know that majority of the northerners in Lagos live in Ijora, Agege and Badia.”
Also, the leader of the Hausa community in Ijora, Ahmed Hamanbade said “This morning, while in my shop, I was called upon that a Boko Haram suspect was in our midst, because everyone in the community had been duly notified that when we see any strange face, we should always question the person. When we caught him, he responded to our questions in the Hausa language and we learnt that he had escaped from Mubi in Adamawa State to Lagos.”
