In an intensified effort to end the prolonged insurgency ravaging the northern part of Nigeria, the Nigerian Army made another arrest of a Boko Haram sponsor who paraded himself as an Army General.

A few hours after three sponsors of the proscribed terrorsit group, Boko Haram were apprehended, another suspected sponsor, Aliyu Hussaini, who has also been parading himself as an Army general, has been arrested.
The Nigerian Army, in a statement on Tuesday, October 6, said Hussaini was arrested by soldiers of the 33rd Artillery Brigade in Bauchi State
The statement read:
“The 33 Artillery Brigade, Nigerian Army, has recorded another landmark success in the ongoing Operation Zaman Lafiyah as troops of the brigade recently arrested one Aliyu Hussaini, popularly known as Colonel, a suspected Boko Haram terrorist and an Impostor who has been parading himself as a Brigadier-General in the Nigerian Army.
“The troops, who were acting on a tip-off, said Aliyu Hussaini was a sponsor and also a member of the Boko Haram terrorist organisation. (They) carried out a raid operation, which led to the successful arrest of Aliyu and another suspected Boko Haram member, one Ibrahim Mohammed, who is also known as Yuram.
“It was later gathered that Aliyu had been defrauding innocent citizens (with the claim) that he was a general in the Nigerian Army,” the statement read.
