158 Boko Haram suspects arrested in Adamawa

•As CAN mourns Bauchi bomb victims, berates state govt

From DAVID MOLOMO. Yola, AIDOGHIE PAULINUS, Abuja

A special joint task force of security operatives, comprising men of the State Security Services (SSS) the Police and the Armed Forces, codenamed, “Operation Restore Sanity” on Monday, unraveled the mystery of Boko Haram operations in Mubi, Adamawa State, as no fewer than 158 persons have been arrested with sophisticated weapons . Security agent s also discovered a factory alleged to be manufacturing ammunition, guns and Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), daggers, bows and arrows, AK 47 rifles, gun smokers and dane guns and were recovered by Operation Restore Sanity.

The factory, located at the Shagari Low Cost Housing Estate, in Yelwa Ward, Mubi was discovered, while the security operatives embarked on house-to-house search for culprits and suspects of the Boko Haram Islamist sect, following a dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed on Mubi Metropolis and its environs.

The Brigade Commander, of the 23rd Armoured Brigade, Brigadier- General, John Nwoaga, who conducted newsmen to the housing estate told journalists that the 158 suspects were arrested during the search and some of them were apparently responsible for the vandalization of Airtel, MTN, and Globacom network masts in the metropolis. According to him, the operation is ongoing and it is a sweeping exercise, as more suspects would be arrested, while innocent folks would be released to their families. General Nwoaga, also told journalists at the Army Base in Mubi, where the suspects are detained that six females and five children were among the 158 suspects already detained by the Operation Restore Sanity.

He said that the safety of the law abiding citizens in the area was important to the security agencies and enjoined royal fathers in the state to cooperate with the Operation Restore Sanity agents assignment as security agents were poised to fish out the culprits of security breaches in Mubi and the entire state. General Nwoaga charged the royal fathers not to show lukewarm attitude to the assignment, as useful information were required from them as people closest to their respective communities and should give useful information to them for the success of the operation.

The intelligence reports from the Royal Fathers, will go a long way to successful arrest of the suspects who will be interrogated, and those found to be innocent would be let free. Meanwhile, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has commiserated with the families of victims of Sunday’s bomb blast in Bauchi, Bauchi State.

CAN in a statement signed by special Assistant to the association’s President, Mr. Kenny Ashaka in Abuja, said it received with shock, the bomb explosion at the St. John’s Catholic Cathedral in Bauchi which killed four people when an explosives-packed car reportedly rammed into the line of worshippers waiting to be screened before entering the church. “According to reports, the suicide bomber died while no fewer than 48 worshippers sustained various degrees of injuries. “CAN commiserates with the families of victims of the bomb explosion, the leadership of the Church in Bauchi State and the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) over this dastardly act. “It prays that the Almighty God will continue to defend His Church, people and multiply the lots of Christianity in Nigeria.

“CAN notes that the re-launching of violence against christians and their churches at a time when many Nigerians felt such insurgency had ebbed is instructive,” the statement made available to Daily Sun in Abuja by the Special Assistant to the CAN President on Media, Mr. Kenny Ashaka, said. The statement further read: “Coming on the heels of last week’s attack in Bauchi where some gunmen killed nine christians and injured five, CAN condemns these deadly attacks. “We blame these attacks targeted at christians in Bauchi, on the shadowy aloofness of the state government which has failed to take precautionary measures and compliment the efforts of Christians in the state.”

“As it is, the state government seems to be unfazed by the calamities happening to christians. It is sad that after several attacks on christians in the state, we are still unable to put our fingers on the government’s ability to secure the lives, property of christians and their churches. “While CAN believes that christians and well-meaning Muslims should continue to work together for the attainment of peace in the land, it is convinced that muslim leaders in the north can end this orgy of violence and blood-letting by fishing out elements in their midst whose intention is to give their religion a bad name.

“From what we see, these planned attacks on christians, churches, Islamic clerics and traditional rulers who are not in support of their nefarious activities, government institutions and properties of privately-run business concerns, the economy of the region may be plundered beyond redemption,” CAN noted.

    The days of Boko Haram are numbered soon we will celebrate if the present tempo is sustained in fighting this terrorists. One good thing is that this fight by BH is not a popurlar uprising and majority of muslims are against their cause of actions. I prayed that one day their Sheik Shekau will be arrested and that will be the end of this insurgent.

    The CAN President has said it all. Is either the state governors of all these northern states with the cooperation of the citizens fish out and expose these truants, there will not be any development in the north anymore. Keep up the good efforts the ORS team.
