The Director of Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Mohammed Yerima, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said suspect was identified as Modu Ari.

He said the spying activities of the informant and his accomplices were responsible for the attacks on troops’ position by terrorists in the state.

“Investigation is however ongoing to unravel the network of local informants whose nefarious activities have endangered troops on clearance operations around the fringes of Timbuktu Triangle.”
