Troops of the 3rd Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Kano have raided Filin Lazio in Hotoro quarters of Nassarawa Local Government Area of Kano State and arrested 13 suspected members of Boko Haram.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told journalists yesterday thatt the military operation in Kano was carried out while the Muslim faithful were breaking their Ramadan fast.
“The sudden operation took the residents by surprise and that compelled many of them to flee the area,” the source said.
It was gathered that the targeted mosque belongs to some indigenes of Borno State, who fled the North-east following the intensity of the nefarious activities of Boko Haram insurgents.
According to the source, the troops also took away some items from the surroundings of the mosque before whisking away the suspects.
The army spokesperson, Captain Njoka Irabor, who confirmed the operation, said he could not give the exact number of suspects arrested.
