Terrorists’ informant, Hamisu Abdullahi arrested in Zamfara

A vigilante group in Zamfara State, popularly known as Askarawa, has apprehended a terrorist informant, Hamisu Abdullahi, who helped bandits coordinate attacks.

Hamisu was arrested on Monday in Kabrawa under the Farfaru emirate, Maru Local Government Area of the state, and handed over to security personnel.

This was made known by Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, via a post on his X handle on Tuesday.

Makama said he gathered that Hamisu’s “spying activities and those of his accomplices were responsible for the attacks on troops and towns in Maru and other LGA in Zamfara.

“On interrogation, he confessed to having revealed troops’ movements and positions to his bandits collaborators.

“Investigation is, however, ongoing to unravel the network of local informants whose nefarious activities have endangered troops on clearance operations in Zamfara state,” Makama said.
