Usman said that the suspects were arrested on Monday after they fled their hideout at Talala and Buk in Damboa local government Area of Borno.

“During preliminary investigation, they claimed that they were fleeing from the terrorists’ hideout at Talala and Buk in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State because of the unbearable military onslaughts and bombardments on their various locations,” Usman said.
