Barely a day after the arrest of a terror suspect on the military’s wanted list, Chindo Bello, Sunday, by vigilant airport security operatives at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, another suspect on the list, Ishaku Wardifen, was on Monday nabbed by vigilant troops of the 23 Brigade Special Battalion at a checkpoint in Maiha, Adamawa State.

Wardifen is among the 100 Boko Haram members declared wanted by the Army last month.

Preliminary interrogation by the military revealed that Wardifen is a Cameroonian citizen.

Visual matching with photographs on the poster of the 100 declared suspected Boko Haram terrorists wanted list released by the Nigerian last month, shows that he clearly resembles the suspect on serial number 22 on the list.

The suspect has been handed over to military intelligence for further investigation and possible prosecution.

A statement by the Nigerian Army, Monday said: “Nigerian Army would like to once more call on all citizens and all well meaning residents of our country to continue to be more vigilant and security conscious to enable us rid our great nation of the menace of terrorism and insurgency.”
