A member of the dreaded Boko Haram sect
captured in Ondo state has confessed that he had planned to launch an
attack in the state before his arrest.
Mohammed Bashir, who was paraded before
newsmen in Akure, confessed to his plans and revealed serious details
into the activities of the dangerous terrorist group. He was arrested on
Isua road, Akoko South LGA of the state.
Gistlovers, learnt that Bashir stated
that certain wealthy northerners from Maiduguri and Nassarawa supplied
Boko Haram with weapons. The 40-year-old criminal explained that he was a
Fulani herdsman before being forced into the sect in Nassarawa in 2016.
He claims he has killed only two people including a child.
Speaking in Hausa, he said;
only killed two people. The first person was a little child who I
murdered inside the bush while the second one was an adult I killed by
the roadside. I ran into Ondo State from Nasarawa after the military
launched a manhunt for us (Boko Haram) in the North. When I arrived in
the state, I went straight to see my younger brother and decided to walk
on the streets of the community.
I had planned to strike but first wanted
to eat by the roadside when I was arrested by the police patrol team
and moved down to their station. Some of our members who ran from the
military are still scattered around the local communities in Ondo
State,” he said.
The police commissioner in Ondo state,
Adeyanju Gbenga said that Bashir was a native of Niger republic adding
that he was a follower of one Daffo, a close confident of the dreaded
Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.
