Boko Haram leader caught in former Rep’s house

Another breakthrough came the way of security agents in their confrontation with members of the dreaded Jamaatu Ahlil Sunna Lidawati wal Jihad, otherwise known as Boko Haram, with the arrest of one of  the sect’s suspected  leaders, Hassan Pagi BUKAR, in the residence of a 2003-2007 member of the House of Representatives (names withheld).

The Boko Haram alleged leader was, according to sources, arrested along with the security guard of the erstwhile lawmaker.

Although the one-time member of the House of Reps was said to have been briefly arrested and interrogated, he has since been  a daily guest of the security agency that effected the arrest.

The arrest was reportedly  made in the Gwarimpa area of the Federal Capital territory, FCT, Abuja.

Sunday Vanguard  learnt, last night, that the arrest and interrogation of Bukar had started yielding results.

For instance, the suspect reportedly disclosed,  upon interrogation, that his brief as a sect member was to “carry out robbery activities by dispossessing members of the public of their cars”.

The security guard in the former House of the Reps member’s residence  (who was described as a mere gateman) was said to have been “employed from Sokoto”.

During further interrogation of Bukar, Sunday Vanguard was made to understand that the suspect disclosed that the cars used for suicide bombings by the sect were stolen vehicles.

One of the very indicting statements of Bukar, the  source said, “was that he implicated the former Rep by saying that he also buys some of the cars from him (Bukar) when they are stolen”
