Soldiers in Chad have arrested a man suspected of being an arms and weapons supplier to terrorist sect, Boko Haram.
The troops also seized a large weapons cache which includes guns, rockets and ammunition from a house in the capital, N'Djamena, according to officials who spoke to Reuters.
The weapons, which were to be taken to Nigeria, were buried under the courtyard of the house in the eastern neighbourhood of Guinebor.
"These were weapons that Baana Fanaye, Boko Haram's logistics chief for northern Cameroon and Chad, was preparing to send to Nigeria," an investigator said.
Chad has intensified operations against Boko Haram since the sect carried out twin suicide bombings which claimed over 30 lives in N’Djamena.
