Police arrest suspected Boko Haram fighter in Germany


Security agents in Germany are holding a suspected Nigerian terrorist of Boko Haram.

The suspect, Amaechi Fred, 27 was arrested on Wednesday in Bavaria.

Twenty-four hours later, a court issued an arrest warrant and ordered that he be remanded in custody.

“He is strongly suspected of being a member of the foreign terrorist organization Boko Haram,”the chief federal prosecutor said in a statement.

The suspect, according to him, joined the terror organization in 2013 and had admitted to actively taking part in four attacks against Nigerian civilians during his one-year membership of the group.

He is accused of killing several people during two attacks on schools and one attack on a village and taking part in another attack on a village, during which members of Boko Haram took girls as hostages and burned down a church.
