Police in Borno says Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP), a faction of ISIS, has spies operating from Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.
Assistant Commissioner of Police, Borno Command, Ahmed Bello, said this on Wednesday while giving update on security situation at a Humanitarian and Development Coordination Forum in Maiduguri.
Bello said 3 among 22 Boko-Haram insurgents arrested two months ago, were members of ISIS.
He disclosed that the terrorists usually stationed their stooge at the IDP camps to perpetrate chaos, without being noticed.
“So if you find any suspicious person, do not just send him away, but arrest him beccause the terrorists have their sympathisers; they are the people that are giving them information,”he said.
He explained that the arrest had led to drastic reduction in cases of bomb blasts in Maiduguri metropolis.
