in a significant victory by Nigerian security operatives against the Boko Haram militant
group, top commanders of the sect have been arrested after security operatives carried out a successful raid against the sect in Kano.
Sources in the SSS say Abu Qaqa, the sect's spokesman and other
top commanders were arrested when the Kano State Joint Task Force, JTF, carried out a sweeping raid on the sect's hide-outs in Kano State.
The Kano JTF has confirmed the raid and the arrests but could not confirm the identity of the other
arrested Boko-Haram leaders.
However, independent sources
have said the sect's spokesman, Abu Qaqa was one of those arrested.
It was learnt that the
non-disclosure of the details of the arrested officers was because the arrested members
were refusing to co-operate with security operatives.
The Federal Government is also being careful about disclosing the names of the arrested officials apparently for fear of embarrassment, the type it suffered earlier in the year when the government disclosed that Abu Qaqa, the sect's commander/spokesman had been arrested, and it turned out to be false.
When she was contacted, spokesperson for the
SSS, Marilyn Ogar, refused to comment.
