Nigerian Army on Thursday said troops of operation Lafia Dole had arrested one of the top commanders of Boko Haram fighter, Bukar-China, otherwise known as Abdullahi Bukar Modu.
It was gathered that the arrested suspect specialized in driving vehicles mounted with anti-aircraft guns to perpetrate evil.
His arrest alongside nine other members of the group occurred at Pulka in Borno State during a clearance operation by the Army and the Civilian Joint Task Force on the 9th, October 2019.
A statement by the military reads that “gallant troops of the Nigerian Army working in conjunction with members of Civilian Joint Task Force on clearance operations on 9 October, 2019 arrested 10 members of BHT in Pulka Borno State.
“One of the arrested terrorists, Alhaji Bukar Modu alias Modu China (Chief Driver) was declared wanted on Serial 89 of NA wanted list”.
It was added that Bukur was earlier sighted in a video where he confessed to have participated in many dastardly attacks of the group including the sacking of Bama town in Borno State four years ago.
