The Nigerian Army headquarters has announced the arrest of a high profile suspected Boko Haram terrorist, Mohammed Mohammed Zauro.
Zauro, is said to have been arrested at Sabon Gari, in Damboa Local Government Area, Borno State, by soldiers while trying to flee to Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, from Sambisa forest.
He was said to have been in possession of a Gionee mobile telephone handset, a fake SAIE/JIBWIS identification card and the sum of N7,900, at the time of his arrest.
The army in a statement issued in Abuja, also announced arrest of another suspected Boko Haram terrorist, Lawal Aboi, along Damboa-Bale road.
He was, however, said to have told the soldiers who arrested him that he was on his way to voluntarily surrender to the troops in Damboa “because he was tired of fighting for no just cause. Both suspects are being further interrogated”.
The Army says both suspects are currently further interrogated.
