An Igbo member of the dreaded Boko Haram Islamic terrorist group was arrested Tuesday by the State Security Services (SSS) in Nigeria.

The Guardian of Nigeria reported that the 31-year-old Igbo man was suspected to be part of the terrorists who carried out the April 8, 2011 bombing of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Suleja, Niger State.

The SSS, which declined to disclose the name of the suspect until it completes ongoing investigation, said the man, whose mother is a Nigerien, is an indigene of Imo State and got converted to Islam in 2003.
