AS the Boko Haram attacks mount, security agencies in the country are recording successes in rounding up top leaders of the sect through active collaborations with two foreign intelligence agencies said to be very active now in Nigeria.
In the last 48 hours, three top leaders of the sect were reportedly arrested in operations involving intelligence sharing and application among the three collaborating intelligence agencies.
One of the top leaders, who was described as very close to the sect’s leader, Ahmed Shekau, was said to have been arrested in a suburb of Kano city on Friday evening.
