Dwarf Boko Haram suspect arrested, reveals he was paid N5,000 for every suicide bomb attack he facilitated
A dwarf Boko Haram suspect arrested in Borno state, has admitted to facilitating suicide bomb attacks in the area. The suspect revealed that he receives not less than N5,000 for facilitating each attack carried out by the terrorists in Maiduguri.
The suspect Abubakar Kori, 25, is among the 22 people arrested by the police in Borno and Yobe for their alleged involvement in suicide bombing activities carried out by the militants.
Kori, who was a security guard at a filling station in Dalori, told newsmen that he participated in several suicide bomb attacks in recent months.
“My role is to keep the Improvised Explosive Device, IEDs, for onward delivery to another person who will carry out the attack. On different occasions, two of my acquaintances gave a parcel to keep for somebody, who will come and take it. I normally kept the parcel in my duty post; the appointed person would come and pick it; after successful delivery, they paid me N5,000,” Kori revealed.
“We reside in the same neighborhood in Maiduguri; they always told me that the parcel was given to them by one Ba’Adam, and asked me to keep it. They introduced me to Ba’Adam, who is the mastermind of the attacks,” he added.
