An indigene of Chibok, Borno State, Ibrahim Tilitili, has told the people of his community that he receives N2,000 as payment for setting houses ablaze in the area, especially houses at Mandara Girau village in Biu Local Government Area of the state.
He also confessed that a certain Mallam Sani, also a resident of the village gave him the amount and instructed him to set some houses in the village on fire.
According to residents of the village, Ibrahim had succeeded in setting ablaze three houses and had scared the people of the village who thought it was an insurgency attack to flee.
“Some of our men were actually scared and were running for their lives to safe haven before some brave young men who summon courage felt they should take on the threat, they discovered that it was Ibrahim and pounce on him and seized him,” a resident told journalists.
He added: “On realizing that, he was somebody they know in the village, they wanted to kill him, but some elders intervened and he was arrested and taken to Sarkin Baka- a renowned hunter in Biu town, where he made confession that, he was actually paid by Mallam Sani who is also resident of the village to set those houses ablaze.
It was learnt that after his confession, his task master was equally arrested and both handed over to the police in Biu town.
