Policemen Pop Champagne As They Celebrate Arrest Of Deadly Boko Haram Commander In Lagos [Photos] 9

There was a big celebration at the police office after a notorious Boko Haram Commander, Abdulmalik Umar, who was said to have been responsible for the death of more than 200 people,  was arrested yesterday in Lagos.

Umar, 39, was arrested by operatives of the Inspector General of Police (IG) Intelligence Response Team (IRT) around Mowe at a nurse’s house where he was receiving treatment for the bullet wounds he sustained during a recent gun battle with the police in Abuja.

A police source disclosed that the suspect, alleged to have masterminded the explosions at Nyanya and Kuje in Abuja in 2015, as well as several bank robberies in Ondo, Edo, and other southern states, as well as the killings in Okene, Kogi State.

Here is what the police source said:

“He was also the one who brought all  the bombs they used during the Nyanya and Kuje attacks in 2015. We have arrrsted some of his members who are in court now. They were the ones who gave us his details and since then we have been looking for him.

“He was the Grand Commander of the attack and rescue operations of the Prison in Niger State early this year where he lost one of his eyes during the operation while over 100 prisoners escaped.”

“He has one eye and is responsible for over 200 killings. We arrested four of his gang members three weeks ago in Abuja and recovered four AK47 rifles which they took from the policemen they killed at Gwagwalada.

“He escaped at that operation with gun wounds and fled to Lagos.

It was gathered that the head of the IRT, Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), and his men had been trailing the one-eyed Umar since he entered Lagos three weeks ago.

They eventually busted his hideout around 2 pm yesterday and arrest him. The nurse, who is said to be Umar’s sister, and her husband were also arrested for aiding and abetting criminality.

We have been on his trail since then. He went to his sister’s house in Mowe to hide. His sister was treating him of the bullet wounds.  We have arrested her and her husband too because they are accomplices.

Confirming Umar’s arrest, police spokesman Jimoh Moshood, an acting Deputy Commissioner said he would soon be paraded. He said:

“It is true that he was arrested in Lagos. He fled Abuja with gunshot injury and was trailed to Lagos. We arrested some of his gang members three weeks ago and recovered weapons from them. They will be paraded soon.”

There was a big celebration at the police office after Abdulmalik Umar was arrested. Top police officers and their subordinates popped bottles of champagne to rejoice over the arrest.
