The Borno State Police Command on Sunday said it has arrested a driver, Malam Modu Mustapha for allegedly purchasing fuel and food items for Boko Haram insurgents.

Commissioner of Police in the state, Damian Chukwu said the suspect was arrested after a tip-off by members of the public.

“The Police have received information that one Modu Mustapha of Jumptilo village was a terrorists’ collaborator, who buys fuel and food for them, at Alagarno and other hideout.


“The Police descended on the suspect, who has confessed to the crime,’’ he said.

He said the suspect met the terrorists where he usually fetch firewood in the bush.

“He said that he had been buying things for the insurgent group.

“We recovered N10, 000 from the suspect, which the terrorists gave him to buy bicycle spare parts for them,” said the commissioner.

The commissioner said the suspect also named 15 other firewood vehicle drivers, who engaged in similar crime.

“We have not been able to establish his reasons for buying things for them, whether he is under the influence of spell, coerced into doing it, or doing it willingly as their collaborator,” said Chukwu.

He added that he would be transferred to the military for further action.
