Security agents in Germany are holding a certain Amaechi Fred O, said to be a member of the terrorist organisation, Boko Haram.
The twenty-seven year old was arrested in Bavaria on Wednesday, with an German court issuing an arrest warrant twenty-four hours later that he be remanded in custody.
The chief federal prosecutor, according to The Nation, said in a statement that “he is strongly suspected of being a member of the foreign terrorist organization Boko Haram”.
Amaechi said he joined the terror organization in 2013 and is said to have 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.
