One of the arrested Boko Haram leaders and kidnappers of the Chibok schoolgirls, Mallam Mayinta Modu, alias Abor, aged 23, has revealed that each of them received N60,000 as ransom before they freed one batch of the abducted girls.

Modu, who hails from Bama Local Government Area, Borno State, confessed to being one of the Boko Haram Commanders that coordinated and led the kidnapping of the Chibok schoolgirls in 2014, including several attacks on Bama, Gwoza and Mubi towns in Borno and Adamawa states.

Recall that 22 suspected Boko Haram members, including eight others, who participated in the kidnapping of the girls were paraded at the Borno Police Command, Wednesday, by Deputy Commissioner-led Intelligence Response Team, IRT, of the IGP, Ibrahim Idris, after they were arrested at various locations in Borno and Yobe states.

Modu also revealed that one Mallam Chingori, who is in custody of the remaining Chibok girls, was initially based in Sambisa Forest before relocating to Gulumba village of Bama Council Area following the recent bombardment of the forest by troops.
