The market had been burnt twice by Boko Haram.

Local traders at Gamboru Market in Maiduguri, Borno State, on Wednesday arrested six armed gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members while allegedly trying to attack traders, witnesses said.

The gunmen, according to witness accounts, were spotted entering the market with their weapons hidden under their garments.

“A trader alerted us when he saw them and we immediately trailed and rounded them up,” said 36-year-old grocery merchant, Babagana Aji.

“We caught them with our hands before they attempted to bring out their guns, after we succeeded in disarming them we beat them blue and black before handing over to the soldiers’, said the trader.

The traders said they were encouraged by the youth vigilante who had been catching the terrorists using only sticks, cleavers and cutlasses.

“This Gamboru market had suffered several attacks; the Boko Haram has burnt it twice and killed several traders,” said Sanusi Dantakai, an orange vendor. “We are tired of the losses we incurred at every attack carried out by the Boko Haram. That was why we summoned courage to catch them today.”

A Boko Haram spokesman, Abu Zinnira, had on Monday in an email to journalists warned of the sect’s resolve to attack the youth vigilante and other young men who collude with soldiers to arrest its members.
