A suspected Boko Haram member was arrested on Saturday in Ikorodu Area of Lagos State.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant-General Tukur Buratai disclosed the arrest yesterday at the re-opening of two major roads which were shut amid insurgent attacks.
The roads are Maiduguri-Gubio-Damasak and Maiduguri-Monguno-Baga.
General Buratai charged troops in the North-east to pursue the fleeing Boko Haram terrorists and intercept them.
Meanwhile former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, has saluted the courage and determination of President Muhammadu Buhari, army chiefs, the military men and women and other security personnel over their roles in the liberation of Sambisa Forest and adjoining abode of Boko Haram insurgents.
In a statement he personally signed General, Babangida expressed delight at the news, saying it is a relief that the Boko Haram terrorists have been successfully smoked out of their notorious enclave.
He expressed optimism that with the successful takeover of the Sambisa Forest, the remaining Chibok girls will soon be located and returned to their families.
