The arrested Boko Haram terrorist Chindo Bello, was nabbed at the Abuja airport yesterday trying to board an Aero Contractor plane heading for Lagos. Sources at the airport revealed that Bello almost beat all security points at the airport until someone........
recognised him and notified the authorities. He was prompted arrested.
Confirming the arrest, a top security personnel, who pleaded anonymity, revealed that the suspect was first taken to the Airport Police Command after his arrest, from where he was transferred to the Counter-Insurgency and Intelligence Unit (CIIU), in Abuja, where he’s being detained.
