Army arrest undercover orange-seller with N600milliom in his account

The General Officer Commanding (GOC), 1 Division Nigerian Army,
Kaduna, Major-General Garba Wahab, at the weekend said the media
should not eulogize criminals as the Division has arrested a suspected
orange seller who spied for terrorists and over N600 million was found
in his bank account within three months.
The GOC, whose area of command covers the north-western states, while
fielding questions from newsmen in Kaduna relating to why the Army is
carrying out general search without discrimination, said, "When we
stop those who are hawking and carrying wheelbarrow, and we said we
want to check, people will shout, 'Why are you disturbing the average
person?' And I give you example; we arrested somebody here called mai
lemu (orange seller) in Kawo here. And in three months when we checked
through his account, over 600 million naira has passed through that
man's account, and he sells orange here by Kawo bridge.
"He is there as a lookout. He is like a spy. He looks around, gets
information and feeds these guys, says this is what is happening. That
is why I said we are not dealing with idiots. We are dealing with
people who have one or two guys working and thinking, and giving them
information. And we know that before they attack they must look at the
softest locations."
Wahab added that it is a criminality that the media and society must
cooperate and ensure that it is brought to an end.
On Thursday's attacks in Daura, he explained that military personnel
adhered to the principles of rules of engagement, saying, "I called
this press conference to fill the gap on the attack that occurred in
Daura, Katsina state. We don't want a situation where people will be
speculating. Yes, the criminals came, they bombed vehicles, and they
packed money using improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to bomb
everywhere. Nobody will give an instruction for an innocent life to be
lost, so in whatever we do, we keep to the rules of engagement given
to us and that is why I have called the media to lend us their support
because when a few reports go out, it's like it is encouraging the
criminals and they start to think they have the upper hand."
Meanwhile, the presidency yesterday offered amnesty to any Boko Haram
member who surrenders, as it wages war on the insurgents in Borno,
Yobe and Adamawa, where state of emergency was declared last Tuesday.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Rueben
Abati, revealed this yesterday while talking to Reuters, a foreign
news agency, on telephone.
He said: "Mr President has urged Boko Haram members to surrender their
arms and embrace the amnesty option which is still open as the
committee is working on the option of dialogue for a peaceful
