21 suspected members of the Boko Haram sect arrested in Enugu State last Wednesday have been transferred to the Force Headqaurters, Abuja for further questioning by the State Police Command.
The National Task Force (NATFORCE) had last Wednesday arrested the suspects who were said to be travelling to Kano with several military uniforms concealed inside a luxurious bus, at Amala in Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu state.
The suspects, it was learnt, who left Aba, Abia state were intercepted at the wee hours of Wednesday morning at a boarder community in Enugu state leading to the northern parts of the country.
The command spokesman, DSP Ebere Amaraizu while confirming their movement to Abuja however dismissed reports that they were Boko Haram members.
“Those people have been transferred to Abuja for further screening. They are no longer with us. But the command wishes to state that those people are not Boko Haram, this cannot be possible. Let us not go about saying that they are Boko Haram members”
