Troops of 21 Special Forces Brigade, Bama in Borno State, have arrested a wanted spy of the Boko Haram terrorist organisation, Modu Babagana.
POLITICS NIGERIA learned that Babagana had escaped from military detention in Bama.
The terrorist apologist was first arrested in January 2020 for carrying out espionage activities on troops in the general area of Bama and Banki. But a few days after Babagana was taken to prison, he reportedly used charms to facilitate his escape from custody.
Subsequently, authorities declared him wanted.
This week, he was rearrested with the help of the men of the Civilian Joint Task Force in Bama main market while on a task to buy logistics for the terrorists with huge amount of money.
During preliminary investigation, the suspect confessed to have monitored and disclosed troops’ location and movements to Boko Haram militants.
