The Nigerian Army has arrested and paraded a man who is allegedly a Boko Haram spy.
The suspect, who is alleged to have participated in a 2011 bombing, was paraded by the army on February 29, 2016, in Bauchi, Daily Trust reports.
He was identified as Victor Moses from Benue State and was arrested in the Alkaleri area of the state.
“Our troops on duty in Alkaleri arrested Victor Moses after receiving a report from people in the area that the suspect had been loitering around the mosque claiming he was a Christian and wanted to convert to Islam but because he is not from the area, they suspected him and reported to our men,” Brigadier General Abraham Luka Dusu said while parading the suspect.
“Victor Moses confessed to conducting surveillance for Boko Haram when in a shop belonging to Abubakar Shetima Bama in Jos while Salisu Mohammed Bello and Umar Madaki are based in Gombe,” he added.
Moses was arrested along with three other suspects: Abubakar Shetima Bama, Salisu Mohammed Bello and Umar Madaki.
