Military Discovers Boko Haram Business Center, Arrest Managers


The 7 Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Thursday further inflicted more damages to the Boko Haram camp with the discovery of a business centre around the popular and busiest area of Post Office, in the metropolis, which specialized in the production of fake National Identity Cards (NIDC) and other documents for terrorists.

The business centre, before its identification by the military, was being operated and managed by Mr. John Zakariya and Mallam Makinta Umar, who are now in the custody of the military assisting with useful information.

This was contained in a press statement signed by Colonel Tukur Gusau, the Deputy Director Army Public Relations.

Gusau, in the statement, said: “The arrest of the accomplices were made possible after a Boko Haram Terrorist, who was earlier arrested, confessed to Joint Investigation Centre that the suspected persons were in the business of producing ID cards for the terrorist group.

“The items recovered from the accomplices include computer laptops, memory sticks, still camera, among others.”
