Security forces in Kaduna State have arrested one Kankere, an in-law to a notorious terrorists commander, Dogo Gide, at Kagarko market.

Daily Trust reported that Kenkere, a Fulani hearder and father in-law to Dogo Gide who was arrested by troops led by local vigilantes after evading arrest for over two weeks.

A security source who pleaded anonymity confirmed the arrest to Daily Trust on Sunday, adding Kenkere was picked up after series of intelligent reports that Dogo Gide used to hide in his house after committing most of his nefarious activities.

According to him, Kenkere who rears cows and resides at Fulani settlement in Janjala village in the area has been evading security arrest over two weeks ago, adding that intelligent information has revealed that Dogo Gide sometimes comes to hide at his in-law’s settlement in Janjala.

“You know the terrorists’ commander is married to one of the daughters of Malam Kenkere who stays at a Fulani settlement in Janjala village here in Kagarko.
