Police arrest suspected Boko Haram bomb maker

A suspected Boko Haram bomb maker and nine accomplices have been arrested by the Nigerian security operatives.

The man, identified as Ba?na, suspected to be behind the fabrication of explosives used in a series of Boko Haram suicide attacks, was arrested in Yobe State, a senior police officer told Agence France Presse on Tuesday.

The suspected bomb maker was held in the Arikime area of Potiskum after some weeks of surveillance, said the officer, who was involved in the Sunday arrest.

Potiskum, the commercial capital of Yobe State, has been hit by a wave of bombings in recent months, including a suicide attack on a secondary school in November in which 58 people were killed.

On January 18, at least four people died in an attack on a bus station, while the previous weekend two women wearing suicide vests killed six people at a market and two died in a car bombing outside a police station.

The police officer, who asked not to be named because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said Ba?na was in his mid-thirties and had admitted making the bombs.
