Four informants who are thought to be giving terrorists information about the whereabouts and movements of Nigerian troops on the outskirts of Abuja have been detained.
NewsReport that he criminals are already in the custody of an Abuja security agency, according to an intelligence operative who informed PRNigeria of the arrest.
The operative claims that the suspects were apprehended using high-tech tools such as walkie-talkies, revolvers, knives, amulets, and old, data-less Chinese-made phones.
The source, who was part of the raid that led to the arrest of the informants, said discreet investigations are ongoing to confirm their leaders and financiers.
Activities of the terrorist-collaborators were responsible for the recent attacks around the vicinity of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, the source added.
“The suspects are currently being interrogated to determine if they are working for terrorist groups or armed bandits or other elements with ulterior motives.
“I can authoritatively inform you that, while the military has deliberately refused to provide updates since the attack on Kuje Prison, to last attacks on troops at the Bwari and Zuma Rock axis, the joint security task force has so far killed more than 70 armed criminals, including dangerous Kuje prison escapees and terrorists,” the source added.
