membership of the group.

Boys. I was introduced into the group in 2014 by my friend here.
“Our leader is one Ibrahim, he is currently at large,’’ the suspect said.

participating in its activities anymore.
The suspect alleged that when the Police arrested some of them, they
named him as a member.

school, also said that he had left the group but always afraid of some
of the boys.
“I joined the FTB last year, when one of my friends introduced me to the group.
“We have members in various schools here in Asaba. We do not use any
weapon, we only fight with our hands.
“Early this year, I told my friends that I do not want to belong to
the group anymore because I was afraid of some of the bigger boys,
especially Ibrahim,” the suspect said.
The CP said the police were still investigating the activities of the
group and assured that the ringleaders , who are currently on the run,
would be apprehended. NAN
