Troops of 7 Division Garrison providing security at Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp in Dalori, Maiduguri Metropolitan Council, Borno State on Tuesday afternoon arrested an 11-year-old suspected suicide bomber. Usman Modu Tella is among the 100 Boko Haram members recently declared wanted by the Nigerian Army.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect was from Bama town and is among four other children trained for suicide bombing by the Boko Haram terrorists, the Nigerian Army spokesman Sani Usman said in a statement on Tuesday.

Tella confessed interrogation that the three others have already carried out their missions at different locations. His job was to do same in the camp sometime in the future. The boy also pointed out one other Boko Haram senior member, Alhaji Kerewu Abubakar at the camp.

The army spokesman said, “It will be recalled that due to the concerted efforts of the military quite a number of towns and villages hitherto held by the Boko Haram terrorists were liberated, this brought about an unprecedented influx of IDPs to the camp which the terrorists took advantage and infiltrate in order to wreck more havoc among the society.

“The case of these suspects clearly indicated this point hence the need for proper screening of all IDPs with a view to ascertaining their true identity.”

He said the arrest of the suspects is a boost to the fight against terrorism and insurgency in that they were assisting with investigation that would lead to the arrest of more suspected terrorists in the camp and elsewhere.
