Chairman of the senate committee on army, senator Ali Ndume has called on the federal government to expose all the more than 400 bureau de change operators recently arrested for allegedly funding Boko Haram insurgency activities in the country.

Ndume, currently representing Borno south senatorial district in the national assembly, has also demanded an open trial of all the suspects.

Presidential senior special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu had said some days ago, the Nigerian government had arrested some bureau de change operators who were facilitating the transfer of money to Boko Haram terrorists.

Ndume says Nigerians deserve to know what the government was doing concerning the suspects.

He said he was tried publicly and was vindicated when wrongly accused in a trial that lasted six years in an open court.
