See The Full list Of Soldiers, Police Officers and Others Arrested For Collaborating With Boko Haram



PREMIUM TIMES has obtained an exclusive list of 30 people arrested by the Nigerian military for allegedly helping the Boko Haram to sell rustled cows. The arrested people include at least four serving soldiers, two police officers, and some members of the civilian-JTF


The Boko Haram rustled the cows in the territory they still hold and sneaked them into Maiduguri, Borno State, to sell and buy other goods.

The military has since suspected that the insurgents are able to do this and raise fund for their cause based on the active connivance of security operatives and relevant civilians. Subsequent investigation led to the arrest of the 30 people.

The four soldiers arrested include Captain A. A. Hussaini, the operations officer of 195 Battalion in charge of Mafa LGA where Boko Haram still control some areas. .
Another suspect is Lieutenant I. H. Irro, a liaison with 152 Task Force battalion. The other two junior officers are Staff Sergeant Alexander Chiegwe, the guard commander of the main check point from Mafa into Maiduguri, and Lance Corporal Yakpon Dona.

The policemen arrested are Usman Mohammed and Stephen Odoh. The suspects also include three members of the Civilian-JTF. They are Babakkura Ali, chairman of Kasuwan Shanu branch; Bashir Abbas, the chairman of Sector 2 and Modu 2Star, a member from Mafa town.

The arrested civilians include members of the Livestock Traders Association, some herdsmen and a representative of the Shehu of Borno. All the suspects are accused of being involved in castle rustling.
