armyOfficers of the Special Task Force say they are currently trying to unravel the motive behind the movement of some youths from Maiduguri, who were heading to Abuja at about 3am on Thursday morning.

Numbering about 51, the youths were under a lady as they were being conveyed in 3 eighteen-seater mass transit buses, before they were intercepted along Babale in Plateau state as they journeyed from Maiduguri to Abuja in the night.

During interrogation, they claimed they were being conveyed to Abuja on the directives of a Borno State Government official to meet their relatives for assistance in an economic empowerment programme.

Security sources are yet to respond to series of efforts to verify the claims.

DailyPost gathered that investigation is on to ascertain the genuine mission of such a team of young persons moving in the night, more-so as they have made contradictory statements as to the sponsorship of their mission to the nation’s capital.

The movement is being assessed in the light of the security situation and the suspicious claims of the youths.
