Nigerian president's bodyguard arrested for having ties to Boko Haram

30 June 2016, 18:03

Abuja - A bodyguard of President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly been arrested for having close ties with Boko Haram militants.

According to VanguardHassan Aminu who was a personal bodyguard to Buhari, was taken into custody by security operatives to be interrogated.

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 close to the president.

The Frontiersnews, however, reported that the presidency had completely overhauled the presidential security following the arrest of the Aminu.   

Aminu was said to be linked to the leader of Ansaru Islamic Sect, Khalid Albarnawi, second in command to Abubakar Shekau in the hierarchy of the Boko Haram sect.
