Boko Haram: Army searches United Nations staff house in Maiduguri

"The APC hereby demand for the immediate arrest of Kolo Adam and all those who worked with him in sharing this unsafe rumour that is capable of putting the lives of over two million IDPs at the risk of loosing food and medical support from agencies of the United Nations and other humanitarian workers".

"The operation was successfully conducted as over 30 houses were searched".

In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Makinta Zarami, Adam was the first to post information on his Facebook wall saying he had information that Shekau had been captured at the United Nations house with one of his legs injured.

The all progressives congress, APC in Borno state has alleged that some loyalists of former Governor Ali Modu Sheriff, ‎led by one barrister Kolo Adam, are behind the recent rumours, claiming that boko haram's leader, Abubakar Shekau has been arrested at a un rented facility in Maiduguri.

UN's Humanitarian Coordinator, Edward Kallon, called the raid unauthorized.

Edward Kallon, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator for Nigeria, expressed "grave concern" Friday over the military's actions in Maiduguri in the northeast. The security forces carried out a search of the tented camp and left the area at circa 0800 hours.

"The humanitarian crisis in Nigeria's north-east is one of the most severe in the world today", said Kallon.

The hunt for Boko Haram is still going in even after Nigerian government officially said earlier the nation is free from such terrorism.

According to the statement, the search and cordon operations have forced Boko Haram terrorists into change tactics, which has manifested in the employment of suicide bombers to target military locations and the populace.

It said the efforts have been yielding results with the arrest of more Boko Haram fighters over the past few days.

Spokesperson for 7 Division of the Army, Lt. Col. Samuel Kingsley, said: "As part of ongoing counter insurgency operations, the Theatre Command Operation LAFIYA DOLE has been conducting several clearance as well as cordon and search operations in urban and rural areas within the Theatre".
