The presidency, however, could not be reached for comment regarding the reports.

The claim was alarming as it suggested that Boko Haram managed to manipulate itself to get extremely closer to the president.

News24 Nigeria reported on Wednesday that 24 Boko Haram members have been arrested by the Multinational Joint Task Force along the Cameroonian border.
