The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terror groups are getting support from some Nigerians.

Residents of Okoerin community in Ilorin West Local Government Area of Kwara State, on Friday, uncovered a camp where suspected kidnappers camped some children.

Newsmen reports that the camp, a storey building, was uncovered when a woman was looking for her child.

Some of the residents along Okoerin road, off Ibrahim Taiwo road, had gone to look for the child who went to dispose refuse under a bridge adjacent to the building.

When the place was uncovered, some people stormed the building and discovered 13 children already in captivity.

The residents immediately alerted the Police who came and arrested the two suspected kidnappers and recovered the 13 children in their captivity.


Mr Yomi Adebayo, who resides in the area, said the building had been in existence for a long time without any knowledge of the kind of business being conducted there.

Adebayo said four of the 13 children kept in the camp by the kidnappers are female.

Confirming the development, Public Relations Officer of the State Police, Mr Samuel Ajayi-Okasanmi, said the command would commence an investigation into the matter.

Ajayi-Okasanmi advised the residents of Okoerin to continue to be law-abiding and assist the command to get to the root of the matter.

Newsmen also gathered that as a result of the incident, parents and guardians in the community refused to send their children on an errand for fear of being kidnapped.
