Troops of the Nigerian Army have arrested a suspected Boko Haram terrorist, who was in possession of N1,264,000 and CFA 160,000 cash in the Banki area of Borno State.
Punch gathered that the suspect, identified as Ari Arimaye, who said he came from Bula-Urami village, was apprehended by troops of the Operation Lafiya Dole when he was about to enter the Internally Displaced Persons camp in the area.
The cash was reportedly concealed in a black sack.
