Beware! 24 Suspected Boko Haram insurgents Masquerading as Fulani herdsmen arrested in Edo

This is a shocking report. Boko Haram which used to be isolated in the Northern part of Nigeria is gradually spreading in style. The insurgents now pretend to be Fulani Herdsmen; so you may need to be more vigilant than before with movements around your community. Read this!

Luck ran out on 24 suspected Boko Haram members operating as Fulani Herdsmen in Auchi, Edo State when men of the Nigerian Army apprehended them after weeks of investigation.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the Otaru of Auchi Kingdom, Alhaji Aliru H. Momoh, made this announcement on Monday in his palace at Auchi, headquarters of the Estako-West local government area of the state.

The monarch told newsmen that the commandant of the Nigeria Army School of Engineering, NICOHO, near Auchi, informed him of the arrest of the suspected insurgents

“He informed me about what they are doing and the arrest of some 24 suspected members of Boko Haram operating under the guise of Fulani herdsmen in the community,’’ he said. “The commandant also informed me that the suspects would be transferred to Benin,’’ the Highness said. He commended the commandant for taking proactive steps to have taken the fight to the suspected insurgents in the forest, saying that the “issue of security needs careful planning and execution’’. The Otaru, who described the activities of the herdsmen in the area as worrisome, said “we have asked farmers, especially the women, to stop going to the farms for now”. “We gave them some grants to enable them to engage in petty trading in the mean time, to avoid the incessant attacks on them. “The traditional council is collaborating with the army, security agencies, and some vigilance groups, and we have recently incorporated the hunters to help to evolve lasting solutions to the problem,’’ he added.
