Troops have intercepted and arrested a suspected Boko Haram financier and stimulants dealer, Mohammed Maina in Bama, Bama local government area of Borno State.
The suspect, a native of Ngurosoye came from Shuari village in Bama and was arrested with the sum of one million naira cash and some items.
According to a statement issued by the acting director of public relations of the army, Col Sani Kukasheka Usman, “Investigation revealed that Mohammed supplies them kolanuts and other items especially stimulants.
“It further revealed that kolanuts is in high demand among the terrorists as it keeps them active at night. It is apparent also that he plies Maiduguri-Dikwa-Kulli axis where he gathers monetary and other materials contributions from Boko Haram sympathizers along that axis and send same to the terrorists camps.”
