He said: “He sells Honda ACE 125 motorcycles popularly known as ‘Boko Haram’ in Zamfara State. Zamfara State government has since banned the use of this motorcycle.

“However, when they buy it in Kano, they change the cover of motorcycle box and take it to the forest where they assemble it for attacking innocent citizens.”
