Army On Red Alert After Raids On Terrorists Cell
Recent successful raid by the Nigerian Army of a Boko Haram Cell in Mokwa, a large town in Niger State and further South of the country, has put security and army formations in the region on red alert.
As gathered, troops of 31 Artillery Brigade, Nigerian Army, last week raided an evolving Boko Haram terrorists cell at Mokwa and its environs in Niger State.
The raid and subsequent bursting of the cell followed a painstaking surveillance that led to the arrest of the three leaders of the cell, Mustapha Muhammed (Adam Bitri), Ali Saleh and Uba Mohammed, at their hideout at Gidan Mai village, along Mokwa-Tegina road.
Army intelligence has long been tracking Mustapha Muhammed (Adam Bitri), as a ranking terror suspect who was among the group of the Boko Haram terrorists that kidnapped the late elder statesman, Alhaji Shettima Ali Monguno, in Maiduguri on 13th May 2013 along with one Bakura still at large.
Some of the items recovered from suspects include automated teller machines debit cards, Voters Registration cards, National Identity Cards, various mobile telephone handsets and Bank tellers.
