Posted on Updated on

A Boko Haram female terror suspect, along with a 35-year old man, suspected to be an informant of the Islamist sect who engages women in the smuggling and carrying of rifles and ammunitions, were arrested today at the Maiduguri metropolis in Borno state by members of Borno Vigilance Youths Group (BVYG) and the military Joint Task Force (JTF).

After a recent series of arrests and discovery that many of the detained women possessed firearms in the state, the security agencies and the vigilante youths in Borno have been searching the females more than the males.

JTF sources in Maiduguri reported that the vigilance youths have so far arrested five female Boko Haram terror suspects with rifles and 254 rounds of ammunitions in three wards of the metropolis.
