Two suspected members of the Boko Haram militants have been arrested in Zaria area of Kaduna state and handed over to the police.
They were said to have disguised as members of the Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’a Wa’iqamitis Sunna (JIBWIS) First Aid Group, Daily trust reports.
According to Malam Mustapha Imam Sitti, the national director of JIBWIS First Aid Group, they were arrested following an advice that was issued to all religious groups by the military of the possibility of terrorists to use their uniforms.
Sitti said: “The first suspect was caught fully dressed in our uniform. Members of our First Aid Group (‘Yan Agaji) have their uniform. Following the military’s advice, we have introduced certain security measures. Through those measures, our members can identify themselves anywhere they meet. This was how we arrested the suspect and handed him over to the police.
“Of recent, the leader of our First Aid Group in Soba local government was matcheted to death. Therefore, the arrest of these suspects made us to believe that it was Boko Haram that killed him. We would continue to be vigilant and we want to advise all religious groups to do the same since Boko Haram have began to infiltrate our First Aid Groups.”
