The PRNigeria reported that the male suspects are undergoing interrogation by the military and intelligence operatives.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian military is yet to confirm the speculation over the arrest of a Boko Haram kingspin, popularly known as Bashir Sarkin Yanka, which in Hausa means “Bashir the King of Slaughter.”

According to the Media Coordinator, Operation Lafiya Dole in the North-East, Air Commodore Dele Alonge, the military cannot confirm the arrest of “Shekau’s actor”.

Alonge, however, said that the military has sustained its counter-insurgency operations where some terrorists have been eliminated and others apprehended in the North-East.

He said: “As you are aware, the Nigerian military has succeeded in routing out terrorists from some of their hideouts in the North-East and in the process some were eliminated and others have been arrested.
