Since the capture of Sambisa forest by Nigerian armed forces, members of Boko Haram have been spreading outside their former enclave.
And now, the Department of State Services says it has arrested four suspected members of the group in Agege, Lagos.
DSS spokesman, Tony Opuiyo says they are Fanayi Hassan, Butame Hassan, Kologoni Bukar and Amina Abubakar.
He also says a leader of the sect who is responsible for Boko Haram’s activities in Okene in Kogi State, central Nigeria has been arrested.
Tuesday’s arrests are not the only ones this year. Four people had earlier been arrested in Taraba and Nasarawa States.
