A member of the deadly Boko Haram sect was arrested in Isua Akoko, the headquarters of the Akoko South-East Local Government Area of Ondo State few days ago.
While being paraded by the Ondo State Police Command, the suspect revealed, they were planning an attack on the state before he was arrested.
The suspect who spoke to journalists, ‘in Hausa’ said;
“I only killed two people. The first person was a little child who I murdered inside the bush while the second one was an adult I killed by the roadside. I ran into Ondo State from Nasarawa after the military launched a manhunt for us (Boko Haram) in the North. When I arrived in the state, I went straight to see my younger brother and decided to walk on the streets of the community.
I had planned to strike but first wanted to eat by the roadside when I was arrested by the police patrol team and moved down to their station. Some of our members who ran from the military are still scattered around the local communities in Ondo State,” he said.
The police commissioner in Ondo state, Adeyanju Gbenga said that Bashir was a native of Niger republic adding that he was a follower of one Daffo, a close confident of the dreaded Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.
