JUST IN: PICTURED - Nigerian Army Parades 42 Boko Haram Suspects In Lagos State

The Nigerian Army on Monday [Jul 29]paraded 42 suspected Boko Haram members arrested in different parts of Lagos and Ogun States.
They were said to have fled the ongoing military intervention in some parts of the north and were arrested between July 12 and 23, 2013.

Parading the suspects at the headquarters of 81 Division, the General Officer Commanding, GOC, Gen. Obi Umahi said the organised raid, was done in conjunction with intelligence operatives.
The suspects were said to be planning to unleash terror in parts of the South West, including 81 Division’s area of operations.
He said the raids were conducted at Ibafo trailer park and Ileke new trailer garage in Ogun State; Aviation quarters at Mafoluku, Oshodi; Ketu/Mile 2 Motor Park; Orile trailer park; Lekki new extension and Bar beech, which are fast becoming Boko Haram terrorist enclaves.
Umahi said at interrogation, the suspects who were arrested at different intervals gave useful information that led to the clamping down on others.
The GOC reiterated security agencies’ determination to rid the country of terrorists, adding that the suspects will be handed over to relevant agencies.
He however refused to disclose if weapons were recovered during the raid, “The Boko Haram trickling influx is adduced to their plan to unleash terror in some parts of the South West.”
Meanwhile, one of the arrested suspects, Ibrahim Abubakar Bori, confirmed to newsmen that they took part in several major operations in Borno State, where several military personnel and civilians have been killed since the insurgency stated in 2009.
