It seems like Nigeria security forces and other anti-corruption agencies are serious with President Muhammadu Buhari standing order to fish out sponsors of insurgency throughout the country, as one of the sponsors of the Boko Haram insurgents, Adama Uomar, was arrested on Thursday, April 1, 2021 by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency. The suspect is a Chadian youth whose duty is to buy narcotics for the terrorists.
Just one day after the president departed to the United Kingdom for his routine medical check-up, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has made an important catch. According to a presidential media aide, Lauretta Onichie, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Thursday, April 1st, 2021 announced that it arrested a hard drug provider for Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria. The name of the 35-year-old suspect, who happens to be a Chadian national, is Adama Uomar who procures narcotics for the insurgents in Taraba State in the northern part of Nigeria.
Earlier, the federal government had said that security agents had arrested some Nigerians funding Boko Haram terrorists. The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known on Tuesday, March 30, 2021. However, Legit.ng gathered that Garba Shehu insisted that people would be shocked when details of the investigation on how the sums of money were transferred to the group would be fully disclosed.
He said the sponsors include some bureau de change operators with contacts abroad. Garba Shehu also revealed that places of worship are used to harbor killers of security agents in the country, assuring that heads of intelligence agencies are working on it. The presidential aide stated saying; “It is shocking to many Nigerian that places of worship and farmland are places where killers of policemen, naval officers and military are being harbored. This discovery will shock you. But this is going on all over the country.”
