Department of State Services (DSS) has paraded a Boko Haram terrorists’ leader, Bello Danhajiya.
The notorious terrorist among other crimes was alleged to have defrauded many prominent personalities. He has also been identified as deputy to Khalid Al-Barnawi, second-in-Command to the controversial insurgents’ leader, Abubakar Shekau.
While briefing journalists Wednesday, an agent of the DSS, Garba Abdullahi, related that the agency informed the public of the arrest of Khalid Al-Barnawi, known for his leadership and notoriety in terrorism activities in Nigeria.
The suspect, Abdullahi added was also known for his talent-spotting and recruitment of young people into the Ansaru/Boko Haram terrorist groups. He indicated that with the arrest of Al-Barnawi, DSS has made an “uncommon success” in the decimation of the groups and their leadership.
According to DSS agent, “Danhajiya is a Fulani from Zamfara State and a strategic accomplice of Al-Barnawi. Preliminary investigations have disclosed his involvement in gun-running, cattle rustling and other nefarious criminal activities principally on the directives of his commander, Al-Barnawi. So far, efforts are being made to conclude the investigations and commence prosecution in line with the law.”
He identified other suspects arrested for fraud as Aminu Ado, who he said has confessed to have defrauded former Defence Minister, Gen. (rtd) Theophilus Danjuma of N1m; David Michika, who once impersonated as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF); Umar Hamza and James Akune, both alleged victims of fake employment promise at the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and Kazeem Usman, who he claimed impersonated President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
