The Nigerian Army on Monday paraded 42 suspected Boko Haram members arrested in different parts of Lagos and Ogun States.
They were said to have fled the ongoing military intervention in some parts of the north and were arrested between July 12 and 23.
Parading the suspects at the headquarters of 81 Division, the General Officer Commanding, GOC, Gen. Obi Umahi said the organised raid, was done in conjunction with intelligence operatives.
The suspects were said to be planning to unleash terror in parts of the South West, including 81 Division?s area of operations.
Meanwhile, the Directorate of Army Public Relations on Monday urged members of the public to be wary of messages by fraudsters soliciting financial assistance.
This is contained in a statement issued by Col. John Agim, Chief of Staff in the directorate in Abuja on Monday.
“It has come to the notice of the directorate that some fraudsters are using our official e-mail address to circulate messages seeking financial assistance from the general public.
“The directorate wishes to dissociate itself from such embarrassing messages,? it said.
The statement appealed to members of the public particularly the media, to clarify such information from the headquarters when in doubt.
