Soldiers storm Bauchi hotel, arrest ‘suspected’ terrorist

The Nigerian soldiers came in a commando style.

Soldiers on Monday evening stormed Wikki Hotel in the Government Reserved Area of Bauchi, ostensibly to arrest a suspect.

A witness told PREMIUM TIMES that the soldiers came in large numbers in a commando style.

Some residents said the soldiers came to arrest a member of the dreaded insurgent group, Boko Haram, while others said the suspect(s) may have been the kidnappers of the seven foreigners abducted in Jamaare Local Government Area of Bauchi.

The foreigners are yet to be freed. A group, Jama’atu Ansarul Muslimina Fi Bidalis Sudan, has claimed responsibility for the kidnap.

“The soldiers eventually arrested an unarmed civilian in the hotel,” a witness said.
