One Umar Abatcha, a boko haram commander who was arrested in Borno state in May 2019, has reportedly disclosed that his first assignment was killing a teacher and three of his close friends.

According to the Cable, the Borno state commissioner of police, Mohammed Aliyu, disclosed that Abatcha confessed to being a member of the terrorist sect after being grilled by detectives.

It was gathered that the suspect, after leaving the insurgents' camp, escaped to Lagos. He, however, returned to Borno on May 13 and was subsequently arrested.

Aliyu stated that Abatcha claimed he returned to Maiduguri, thinking he won'tbe recognized by anyone.

He said the suspect claimed he was forced to pick arms to fight the military.
