Senator Admits Boko Haram Top Commander Is Nephew But Denies He Was Arrested In His Home



Senator Ahmed Khalifa Zanna of the Borno Central Senatorial District has denied that suspected Boko Haram top commander Mohammed Shuaibu Bama was arrested in his Damboa Road home, in Maiduguri’s GRA.

Speaking to newsmen in a telephone interview, Zanna confirmed that the suspect is his nephew, but asserted that there was nothing more than that. He said he was not harbouring Bama and that the suspect was not actually arrested in his home.

He challenged security agents, whom he accused of harassing and beating children in his house yesterday, to go and investigate the man’s relationship with the people in whose home he was arrested.

“They said they arrested the man in the house of a lawmaker in Damboa Road, and there is no any lawmaker in Damboa Road except me,” he said.  “They did not arrest him in my house, they went to my house but did not find him, and instead they arrested children in my house and put them inside hot sun and started beating them. And they asked them whether they know Shuaibu Bama, and one of the boys answered yes. He then took them to where they arrest Shuaibu Bama.”

On his relationship with the suspect, he answered, “Shuaibu Bama is a son of my sister. But the lie is what they are saying that they arrested him in my house, which is lie. And we cannot hide or harbour a Boko Haram sect member. And since he was not arrested in my house, they should go and investigate his relationship with people they arrested him in their house. I don’t know anything about it and just heard yesterday.”

    Its shameful that this senator can open his mouth and talk like this. My concern is the fact that he had relationship with the person. How come the children that was beaten in his house took them to where the guy is? Its obvious he is part of the people behind their operation. God will expose all of you. Mscheeeew, bad radiant!!!

    What a shameless man U̶̲̥̅̊ are. Senator, so U̶̲̥̅̊ know Bama a Boko Haram sect commander all these years? How many more people where U̶̲̥̅̊ waiting for him and his sect to kill? Already over 2.5million lives have been killed by U̶̲̥̅̊ and ur nephew. You are also a member. It is unfortunate that we have a weak govt U̶̲̥̅̊ will finally go free but God will judge U̶̲̥̅̊ for ur wickedness. You will die one day like those innocent Nigerians that where killed for nothing.

    It’s interesting to see that another lawmaker is being linked to this boko haram issue. However the case of the previous senator has never been mentioned again talk less of it being resolved. This case will most likely play out the same way. Summary , most of our top leaders have soiled hands so they cannot point any finger in case fingers begin pointing at them also.

    This Senator should be arrested for Habouring a fugitive, obstructing justice, he cannot say he doent know what his so called nephew is doing? But trust me, we won’t hear abt this case again, because a senator is involved, dis is not the first time case of Senator/ boko haram has suffaced.

    What the senator is talking @ this point is baseless.Was the senator not aware that the guy is a terrorist and J.T.F has been looking for him?I think the senator has to be sanction very well.All his statements ar not consistent.The senator is one of them

    Even if the BH commander wasn’t arrested @ the law maker’s residence, I believe he knew the whereabouts of the terrorist & he never reported his location to the security operatives. This makes him an accessory to BH activities

“Oke Wasn’t Killed By Stray Bullet, He Was Stabbed By Thugs” - Brother Claims


Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
