Nigerian Military Arrests Boko Haram's Foreign Computer Expert Who Sent Videos Online



Posted in: ,

The Nigerian military has reportedly arrested a foreign computer expert who is said to be behind the several video messages Boko Haram had sent online and to foreign media outlets in the past. He was said to have been arrested with some sophisticated equipment and copies of some of the videos the terrorists had made of their escapades including that of the abducted Chibok girls.

Military sources disclosed that the computer analyst who is currently being interrogated was responsible for configuring computer images website and internet accesses that enables the group fight media and psychological operations.

A military spokesperson said;

“We have made a very big break through; the computer analyst is opening up and has made very big revelations on the modus operandi of the sect”.

“We also discovered that the ICT expert is the back bone of the signals and communication links of late impersonator, Mohammed Bashir who always poses as Abubakar Shekau, whenever he is talking on Youtube”.

The foreigner was arrested after a shootout when a group of the sect members mobilized and attacked Konduga with a view to recovering the body of the impostor for burial in a site they would later earmark as their shrine.

Vanguard reports that;

... the prisoner has made shocking confessional statements about the terrorist’s plans and modus operandi as well as their backers that would aid the troop’s fast track the routing of the Boko Haram insurgency.

With the breakthrough, the military is said to be better informed on how the Impostor of Shekau was able to reach out to the world and claim victory over Nigerian troops after several attacks.

While confirming that there is a successor crisis in the camp of the terrorists resulting from the death of most of their commanders by troops in Konduga, Vanguard learnt that some terrorists are yet to be disarmed because they were yet to come to terms that their erstwhile leader, Shekau has been killed.
