Suspected Boko Haram member, Mohammed Bashir has said that the insurgent group was planning a mass attack in Ondo state before he was arrested.
Bashir who described himself as an officer in the terrorist group was arrested in Akoko south-east local government area of Ondo said that killing for him and his group didn’t mean much.
“I am an officer in Boko Haram, I was arrested by the police when I wanted to go and eat. Other members of the gang and I have been meeting in the bush on how to carry out attacks on Ondo state,” he said.
“I left the meeting to go and eat when the police arrested me. Killing means nothing to us. I have once killed two people with gun. I killed one man and a boy; we just kill people at will.
“We kill people because we believe that those practising western education are evil doers and we must kill them.”
Ondo state police commissioner, GbengaAdeyanju released a statement calming residents. He explained that they have the means to take down the sect if they remain in the city.
“If they (Boko Haram) remain in this state, we will get them; it is our work, we know how to get them,” he said.
