The DSS operatives alongside officers of the Nigerian Army (NA), were said to have stormed the Miyetti Allah’s office at about 3:40 pm and effected the arrest.

The newspaper said a DSS source who confirmed the arrest disclosed that Bodejo was arrested over fears that the creation of the Nomad’s vigilante group could cause violence across the country.

He added that the group was not registered with the DSS, the police, or any other security agency, hence it is not recognised by the federal government.

The source said:

“Our (DSS) operatives and soldiers of the Nigerian Army stormed the Miyetti Allah’s head office in Nasarawa this afternoon, and we’ve arrested their national president, Bello Bodejo, for creating a vigilante group that is not recognised by the government.
