Wardifen was among the 100 Boko Haram members declared wanted by the Army last month.

One of the terrorists declared wanted, Chindo Bello, was on Sunday caught by vigilant airport security operatives at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

Bello was about boarding an Aero Contractors flight to Lagos when he was apprehended.

Preliminary interrogation on Monday revealed that Wardifen is a Cameroonian citizen.

Visual matching with photographs on the poster of the 100 declared suspected Boko Haram terrorists wanted list released by the Nigerian last month, shows that he clearly resembles the suspect on serial number 22 on the list.

The suspect has been handed over to military intelligence for further investigation and possible prosecution.

A statement by the Nigerian Army on Monday said: “Nigerian Army would like to once more call on all citizens and all well-meaning residents of our country to continue to be more vigilant and security conscious to enable us rid our great nation of the menace of terrorism and insurgency.”
