Intelligence operatives in Abuja on Sunday, have captured four informants suspected to be keeping terrorists up to date about Nigerian security troops.
An intelligence operative divulged this to PRNigeria, adding that the criminals, who were arrested in the outskirts of Abuja are presently in the custody of a security agency in Abuja.
Daily Nigeria reports that according to the operative, the suspects were caught with sophisticated devices including walkie-talkies, revolver, knives, amulets, and old chinese made phones.
The source, who was said to be part of the invasion that led to the arrest, said discreet investigations are in motion to confirm their leaders and financiers.
“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 said.
The source added that activities of the terrorist-collaborators were responsible for the recent raids around the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
