Why I Gave Boko Haram Sect Members N1.5m – Senator Ahmed Zanna
You will recall that the senator in whose home a high profile boko haram member was allegedly arrested, was invited by the Department of State Services (DSS) yesterday to iron out some grey areas.
The Senator, Khalifa Ahmed Zanna, who turned himself in around noon Monday at the DSS headquarters in Abuja, while been interrogated, explained the reason why he gave about N1.5 million to Boko Haram members to buy Sallah rams. The senator representing Borno central in the upper chamber of the NASS told his interrogators that he gave N1.5 million for Sallah rams to the sect members following their threat to attack him.
He explained that the sect members forcefully took his aide to his house for a search, where they retrieved N250,000 with a message that he should provide them with a sum of N10 million or else they would come for him. The senator, who was released last night, is expected back at the DSS headquarters Tuesday, in continuation of investigations.
