MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, June 30 Nigerian troops have
arrested a businessman suspected of being at the head of a Boko
Haram intelligence network that helped plan the abduction of
more than 200 school girls in the northeast, the military said
The man had helped the Islamist militant group plan several
attacks, including the killing of traditional ruler the Emir of
Gwoza, it said in a statement.
The abduction in mid-April of 276 school girls, 219 of which
remain in captivity, has become a symbol of the government's
powerlessness to protect civilians from attack by the group.
