Borno Police Arrest, Parade Boko Haram Logistics Supplier, 44 Others

The Borno State Police Command on Wednesday paraded 45 suspected criminals arrested in different parts of the state for various offences.

Among those paraded was an alleged Boko Haram logistics supplier identified as Goni Mallum, who confessed to running errands for the terrorists.

Mallum said he was captured in his farm by the terrorists who spared his life so he could run errands for them for a fee.
He told journalists that he was arrested when he went to buy drugs for the terrorists.

“They wrote me a list of all they wanted and gave it to me, I didn’t know the items on the list, I just went and showed those at the store, I didn’t know it was risky.

“The shop owner went and reported me to the Civilian JTF and the market union then they came and arrested me. I knew it was wrong but hunger forced me to do it. I used to sell grains in Muna Garage but I lost my capital and I have been jobless.”

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Borno State Police Command, DSP Edet Okon, said Mallum was arrested on a tip-off and would be charged to court as having committed “Acts of Terrorism” for aiding and abetting the crime.

“The suspect confessed that he was saddled with the responsibility of supplying essentials and other logistics to the sect.”

The other criminals paraded alongside Mallum, according to the PPRO, were arrested for various crimes including armed robbery, animal rustling, fraud and extortion, theft, criminal breach of trust and kidnapping.
