The Nigerian army in a statement Saturday, said it has arrested Boko Haram’s “chief cameraman,” Abdullahi Abubakar Sadiq in the town of Uba, in Nigeria’s northwestern Borno state.
Sadiq was number 58 on the list of the 100 most-wanted Boko Haram suspects, which was released earlier this year by the military.
Suspect number 100 on the list is the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau.
Two other suspected Boko Haram terrorists were arrested, according to the statement.
Boko Haram aims to impose Islamic law, or Sharia, and carries out deadly attacks in northern Nigeria and surrounded areas despite the government’s efforts to halt its campaign of terrorism.
