MAIDUGURI, Nigeria – Police say they've killed six members of a radical Muslim sect after a man led them to their hideout in northeastern Nigeria.
The Borno State police chief said Monday that police were taken to a house believed to be a Boko Haram hideout in the city of Maiduguri.
Mohammed Abubakar said police killed six occupants of the house after an exchange of fire Sunday. He said arms, video cameras and a motorcycle were found in the house.
He said the man who took police there had confessed to being a Boko Haram member and to supplying arms from neighboring Chad and Cameroon.
Police accuse Boko Haram of a rash of motorcycle-mounted attacks that have left dozens dead since July.
