Police in Borno State yesterday stormed a house suspected to be the hideout of Boko Haram  members in Damaturu and engaged them in a gun battle.
Seven suspected members of the group were also arrested in Maiduguri in connection with the stampede at the venue of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) rally which left five persons dead.
Borno State Police Commissioner, Muhammed Abubakar, disclosed these yesterday while addressing newsmen in Maiduguri. According to the police commissioner, one of the members arrested, Baba Gana Mohammed, led the police to the hideout in Damaturu.
He said the gunmen engaged the police in a serious gun battle and threw deadly explosives at the police before they ran away after bombing the house.
He said Imman Abubakar Mohammed Shekau, the alleged leader of the group, escaped after they bombed the house which was believed to be their hideout.
Abubakar said two AK 47 rifles, many rounds of ammunitions and deadly explosives including bombs were recovered from the scene.
“The police combined team was sighted by the hoodlums on their way to the hideout, as a result, the fundamentalists started shelling explosives on the team. In the process, they set the house ablaze while bombs continued to explode and escaped,” the commissioner said.
He added that the anti-bomb squad had been drafted to the scene to recover more explosives.
The police boss said two women who are wives to the lieutenant to Shekau, the leader of the Boko Haram sect were arrested after the raid on the house.
He said the suspected members arrested in Maiduguri confessed to be responsible for the sporadic gunshots at Ramat Square venue of the ANPP rally and the robbery incident at Wulari junction and Gwange area in Maiduguri.
The two women arrested in Damaturu confessed to be wives of members of the sect.
One of them named Hadiza told newsmen that she was the younger sister of one of the wives of Muhammed Yussuf, the late leader of the sect.
