Another failed attempt by Boko Haram terrorists who launched another attack weekend on Konduga in a bid to reclaim the dead body of the impostor of Abubakar Shekau, (Mohammed Bashir), led to the arrest of a foreign computer expert who is said to be behind the several video shots sent to online media organization and foreign media houses.
According to Military sources, he was said to have been arrested with some sophisticated equipment and copies of some of the videos the terrorists had sent to online media houses on their escapades including that of the abducted Chibok girls.
Military findings have revealed that the computer analyst who is currently being interrogated was responsible for configuring computer images website and Internet accesses that enable the group fight media and psychological operations.
Sources said he was arrested after a shootout when a group of the sect members mobilized and attacked Konduga with a view to recovering the body of the impostor for burial in a site they would later earmark as their shrine.
“We have made a very big break through; the computer analyst is opening up and has made very big revelations on the modus operandi of the sect”.
“We also discovered that the ICT expert is the back bone of the signals and communication links of late impersonator, Mohammed Bashir who always poses as Abubakar Shekau, whenever he is talking on “YouTube”.
With the breakthrough, the Nigerian military is said to be better informed on how the impostor of Shekau was able to reach out to the world and claim victory over Nigerian troops after several attacks.
While confirming that there is a successor crisis in the camp of the terrorists resulting from the death of most of their commanders by Nigerian troops in Konduga, BREAKING TIMES learnt that some terrorists are yet to be disarmed because they were yet to come to terms that their erstwhile leader, Shakau has been killed.
