Police in Nigeria’s north-eastern Borno state have arrested Boko Haram top commanders and members of the insurgent group that is responsible for several abductions of the Chibok girls according to the militant’s confessions.
The Boko Haram members confessed to having launched over 50 suicide bomb attacks in Maiduguri and parts of Adamawa and also participated in the invasion of Bama and Gwoza and carried out various attacks on security agencies and civilians in the North-East.
The 22 members; three top commanders, two logistic suppliers and 17 fighters now in police custody are among those that orchestrated and commandeered the attacks and atrocities against Nigerians across the country.
The kidnapping of the Chibok girls by the militants currently in custody caused a worldwide online fury under the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls. The uproar was also taken up by world leaders who supported Nigerians in bringing back the girls home. So far, 112 of the girls have regained their freedom.
