However, 26-year-old Madu was a Boko Haram fighter for 15 years before finally surrendering to the Nigerian military in 2021.
“In his statement, Madu said he is from Banki town, Borno State and joined the notorious terrorist organisation in 2006 when he was nine years old. He said he repented and surrendered to the military in 2021, after which he underwent rehabilitation and de-radicalisation processes at Umaru Shehu rehabilitation centre, Maiduguri and Malam Sidi de-radicalization centre, Gombe before he was discharged after spending six months.”
The NDLEA caught him on 9th March along Abuja-Kaduna road with 10 kilograms of skunk he bought in Ibadan, Oyo State, to be delivered in Maiduguri, Borno State.
Madu, a native of Banki in Borno, attended Umaru Shehu rehabilitation centre in Maiduguri and Malam Sidi de-radicalisation centre in Gombe State and was discharged after six months.
The suspect then travelled to Ibadan, where he worked as a commercial motorcycle rider before going into drug trafficking.
