The wife of Boko Haram Leader Mamman Nur, has reportedly been arrested by the Borno Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
Abdullahi Ibrahim, the Borno Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), who confirmed the arrest of two female Boko Haram bombers, disclosed that one of the women is the wife of Mamman Nur, a factional leader of the terrorist group.
The teenager, who was identified as Fatima Muhammed Kabir, who was arrested recently along with another woman, Amina Salihu at Borno Express Motor Park, were on their way to carry out an Improvised Explosive Device attack in Maiduguri.
Ibrahim who spoke at the commissioning of the newly donated equipment by the U.S Department of state on Wednesday in Maiduguri, said many Boko Haram members have surrendered their arms and renounced their campaign of terror, through the command’s civil approach to issues.
The NSCDC commandant who disclosed that Wife of Boko Haram Leader Mamman Nur, has been handed over to the military for rehabilitation, said;
“More than 40 Boko Haram members have surrendered through the command. We have handed them over to the military for rehabilitation under the Operation Safe Corridor.
“We are able to convince them to surrender their arms and accept meaningful de-radicalisation and reintegration opportunity offered them by the government.
“During their stay in the command, they said they are now praying five times in a day as against when they are fighting in the forest,” he said.
