According to Punch, Bashir was arrested in Isua Akoko, the headquarters of the Akoko South-East Local Government Area of Ondo State and paraded before newsmen on Tuesday at the command’s headquarters in Igbatoro, Akure, the state capital.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Gbenga Adeyanju, said the suspect would soon be handed over to the Nigeria Army for further action. The suspect, who spoke in the Hausa Language told journalists that there are other members of the sect in Ondo State who were yet to be arrested.
He said, “I am an officer in Boko Haram, I was arrested by the police when I wanted to go and eat. Myself and other members of the gang are meeting in the bush on how to carry out attacks in Ondo State. I left the meeting to go and eat when the police arrested me.”
The suspect confessed that he joined the group some few months ago and that he had participated in many attacks in Borno and Nasarawa States. He added that some powerful people supplied them arms and ammunition in the bush with which they used for their various attacks.
According to the 20-year-old suspect, "Killing means nothing to us, I have once killed two people with gun, I killed one man and a boy, we just kill people at will. We kill people because we believe that those practising western education are evil doers and we must kill them. “
