Speaking in an interview with Vanguard News, the 21-year-old suspect said,

“I am Bello Turji’s boy. I work under his command. I have been involved in communities’ attacks under the command of my boss, Turji and I have killed over 20 persons in the past but I have repented now.

I ran away from Jangebe forest in Zamfara where Turji is currently hibernating for dear life. The Police arrested me at Funtua, while I was trying to find my way to Suleja, Niger State where my parents live. I left my wife and children there in Makera Village in Zamfara.

We are very many. I don’t know the exact number but we are in hundred’s and I get between N20,000 to N30,000 after every operation.”
