The troops of Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) have arrested six suspected Boko Haram logistics suppliers in Mafa LGA of Borno state.

According to Zagazola Makama, a publication focused on the Lake Chad region, the troops were on a routine search when they came in contact with the suspected Boko Haram logistics suppliers on Saturday.

Sources said the suspects were apprehended with a truck fully loaded with Arabic gum worth N2 million.

The publication identified the suspects as Usman Gujja, Abu Hamman Dawud, Ramat Ibrahim, Hala Hadum, Alhaji Kawu and Bulama Ali Boscoro.

A source told the publication that preliminary investigation revealed that the suppliers receive items from the terrorists which they sell and take the profit back to them.
