"Since then, we have moved on from sharing information to arresting culprits and handing it over to the relevant department for the prosecution" he said.

The commander said he had so far arrested three high-level Boko Haram terrorists and handed them over to military authorities for the necessary actions in 2020.

Abdullahi attributed the recent wave of terrorist attacks in the state to the activities of informants, logistics providers and supporters who live among the residents.

“Only in June, we recorded about the attacks of Boko Haram 19 in the state, some of them were really repelled.

"The command came to the conclusion that the increase in attacks is due to logistical supplies and sleeping cells, which are very active in society; therefore, we have intensified our intelligence gathering which has produced positive results" he said.

He said the command also handled other criminal cases, including theft and assault.

“On April 1, a Bashir Abdulrahman, 30 London, Coli Zannari Ward Maiduguri, was arrested along the Monguno road with 14 mattresses, suspected of having been stolen from a non-governmental organization (NGO), which received the materials as a donation from UNHCR.

“On April 4, a Mohammed Mohammed, from Ruwan Zafi, Maiduguri, in the usual area, was arrested with six vandalized rolls of aluminum conductor cables hidden inside a bean bag, among others," he said.

He said the command recorded about 369 cases in 2020, of which 319 were dropped and more than N100 million were recovered.
